Welcome to the new Russian Organized Crime site. We follow all the recent news on subjects involved in Russian Organized Crime in the United States.

The US's organized criminal threat no longer comes from the La Cosa Nostra. Transnational groups, primarily Russian Organized Crime, have risen to the top.

Hopefully the nations of the world will realize this before they become completely entrenched.
