Inside Russia's Super Mafia with Mark Galeotti and Matt Potter
Tuesday 17th April 2018
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Gower Street
Look inside the world of the BBC’s McMafia, as Mark Galeotti – researcher, author and expert on organised crime in Russia – talks to journalist and author Matt Potter about Russia’s much-feared crime class: the vory v zakone.
Based on two decade of on-the-ground research, Mark Galeotti’s Vory is the first English language book about the fascinating history of the Russian mafia, a group that has survived and thrived amid the changes brought on by Stalinism, the Cold War, the Afghan War, and the end of the Soviet experiment. Matt Potter’s Outlaws Inc., is about the Red Army Veterans turned guns for hire, running black ops for Western governments and smuggling drugs for cocaine weapons and weapons for arms traffickers. Together Mark and Matt will discuss Russian organised crime, from the early days in the gulag and Stalin’s Russia, to modern-day Russia’s free-wheeling oligarchy and global opportunities beyond.
