Russian Speaking Organized Crime Groups in the EU
STOCKHOLM PAPER, March 2011, pp. 59.
The transnational character of Russian speaking organized crime, when coupled with its high degree of sophistication and ruthlessness, has attracted the world’s attention and concern to what has become known as a global “Russian Mafia.” Along with this concern, however, has come a fair amount of misunderstanding and stereotyping with respect to this problem. The paper presents a multilateral analysis of Russian speaking organized crime groups in EU, providing a general overview of its origins, development and impact on the European society. The authors tried to explore the full magnitude of the problem, presenting the possible ways of counteracting.
