#MOB #RedMafiya

Been meaning to do a tread on Robert Friedman's "Red Mafiya" for a while, so since Dotard keeps bullshitting with his low energy projection of MOB, I'll show you the real mob. The mob that owns the Orange Clown.
First here is Friedman's story from 1998 in the Village Voice that enraged Semion Mogilevich so much he put a 100k bounty on his head after it was published.…
Now for the epic work of the very brave Robert Friedman.

I urge you all to read it if you haven't yet. Link here 👇…
The SuperPower of Crime

After Friedman started to expose the rising threat of the RU Mafia, a hit was put on his life by Mogilevech and later threats came from Ivankov.

"A mobster will usually leave a journalists alone as long as they don't come between them and their money"
The Hitman

Mr. Friedman took a trip to Metropolitan Correctional Center to interview one of the most notorious Russian Mob hitmen and Mogilevich associate, Monya Elson, who boasts of over 100 confirmed kills.
The Little Don

The rise and fall of Evsei Agron, who partnered with the Genoveses and others to form an alliance that would reap billions. After surviving previous assassination attempts he finally got his in 1985.

@MichaelCohen212 you know about that El Caribe club don't ya?😉
Brighton Beach Goodfellas

Agron's consigliere Malat Balagula who many suspected carried out his hit, was now the main man in charge. La Cosa Nostra got their cut from the lucrative tax scam and in return didn't fight the Russians, in fact they provided assistance.
As with many other powerful men before and after him, greed got the best of Balagula. He fled the country to escape prosecution for the credit card scheme, but after 3 years on the run he was nabbed at an airport in Frankfurt Germany in 1989.
Operation Red Daisy

It went by that name because the suspects had set up a series of shell companies, or a 'daisy chain,' in six states to take in as much as they could.

The good old days in the tax scam business were coming to an end as investigators zeroed in.
There has to be footage of this trial somewhere.

Mob lawyers 😂😂😂🤣
Red Tide

After spending time in various Israeli jails, Monya Elson returned to Brighton Beach in hopes of moving up the Russian Organized crime ladder. The man in his way was rival Boris Neyfeld. A bloody gangland turf war ensued.
By the early 90's the Chechen mob was a real threat, so looking for allies in the war, 2 prominent figures launched a PR campaign to get Vyacheslav Ivankov released early from jail. Mogilevich even bribed the judge in the case.

Like a rabid dog he was set loose.
Had to include these incredible photos.
Ivankov arrived in his quest to "invade America." His operation aided by many powerful allies helping him not only get setup with a sham marriage, but also get a foothold in several territories worldwide.
Ivankov was tough to find but lo and behold the FBI found he had a condo at Trump Tower and tracked him to Trump's Taj Mahal casino where he and many other mobsters received perks. Eventually some turned on him which led to his arrest. He continued to run his empire from prison.

Ludwig Fainberg was looking to make a name for himself, after he failed in Brighton Beach he traveled to South Florida where he became a big player in the Russian Mob there working with the Colombians in their drug trafficking trade.
Tarzan no smart.

Tarzan has big mouth.

Tarzan rat on friends to avoid jail.
Power Play

A congressional investigation in 1996 showed that half of the former ex-Eastern bloc NHL players were either working hand in hand with the Russian mafia or paying "roofs" or protection to them. Extortion is rampant.
Not a good look NHL.
The Money Plane

Focuses on the intricate schemes the Russian use to launder their illicit funds and how often many US institutions look the other way.
The World's most dangerous Gangster

This entire chapter focuses on the "Brainy Don" himself and his criminal enterprise.

Global Conquest

The RU Mob was now fully entrenched as a powerful transnational force, they began to infiltrate political parties/pols in the US and abroad.

In 96 Swiss authorities arrested Solntsevskaya OC boss Mikhas, but after 2 years in jail he was ultimately acquitted.
Like a criminal Octupus, the Russian mob has their tentacles in everything.

"In a few years the Russian mob will be bigger than La Cosa Nostra in America."

This was a stark warning and it was written nearly 20 years ago.
Well that's it!

Hope you enjoyed :)

For more direct Trump connections to the RU MOB please read my thread on Craig Unger's "House of Trump House of Putin" book.

Dig dig and then dig some more. Knowledge is power.
