Sweet Karma (2009)

The Russian mob has been around for a long time. But after the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the organized crime community in Russia came into its own. The underworld went above ground and thrived as it never did in the era of communism. There had been an American-Russian mob in Brooklyn since the 1970s, but in the early 1990s New York City saw an influx of fresh mobsters from Russia and some of the breakaway republics.

Like the crime families of the American Mafia, the Russian Mafia is not a monolith but rather a loose confederation of crime outfits. This makes them difficult to track and adept at moving from crime to crime. And though their presence in America is on the rise, their hold over Russia is staggering.
