Shadowrun: Seattle 2072
Vory v Zakone
The Vory v Zakone, “Thieves Who Follow the Code,” AKA, the Russian Mafia. A violent, dangerous criminal syndicate that has branches in nearly every city in the world. Their idea of an opening negotiation is a lead pipe to the face; but their sheer strength and firepower has let them compete with the Mafia, Triads, Yakuza and other major criminal syndicates.
In Seattle, they operate mostly out of the docks, Auburn and Tacoma. Their three primary interests are arms dealing, illegal immigrants and matrix crime. They’re headed by Aleksander Bilotkiy, AKA, the Terminator.
They also apparently have some sort of arrangement with Excursions International Research and the Roger Revelle, and seem to be branching out into the drug trade.
