Comrade Gangster: The Russian Mafia. The biggest and most powerful organized crime syndicate since the Cosa Nostra, with a vast network of criminal activity throughout the world and also an alarming amount of military hardware left over from the Cold War - headed by the ruthless Vyacheslav Ivankov. It was during the roaring days of Prohibition that gangsters in America first united to form a national crime syndicate. Since that time, organized crime has grown to become a worldwide menace. In Lords of The Mafia we look not only at the crime families and bosses of the Cosa Nostra in the U.S. but also at the most notorious and ruthless criminal organizations around the globe. In this DVD we expose the inner workings of the frighteningly powerful Russian Mafia.
