Oliver Queen was one of the highest-ranking members a captaindue to the fact that he saved Anatoly Knyazevone of the captains of the Bratva, from Anthony Ivo during his time on Lian Yu.
Anatoly later introduced Oliver to the Bratva Pakhan godfather Ishmael Gregorwho sent him on a mission against Konstantin Kovar's criminal organization. The resulting events brought Anatoly to the status of leadership in the Bratva, with him becoming the new Pakhan. The organization's entire Moscow branch was massacred by the crime lord Ricardo Diaz when he went after Anatoly for his betrayal.
They needed his help to break their friends out from Koshmar prison. At first, Yuri refused to help them, even though he didn't like Vandal Savageclaiming the man didn't respect the criminal traditions of his country. Sara Lance was able to change his mind and Yuri provided the team with information on how to break into the prison using Bratva's black market access to Koshmar. Anatoly told him that the only way to get Kovar was with the help of the Bratva.
So Oliver decided to go through the initiation to become a member and use Bratva resources. After saving Anatoly from Kovar in his casino, he was, in reward, appointed to the rank of captain and marked with the Bratva symbol. Upon returning to Starling CityOliver occasionally used his Bratva contacts, primarily with Alexi Leonovto aid in his crusade, often doing a favor in return.
Such situations included tracking Deadshot discovering the hidden player in Justin Whicker 's sex trafficking ring,  searching for Walter Steele and setting up a meeting with The Count. Due to Oliver's fallout with Alexi, he didn't expect to still be a member,  when he made his way to Russia to track ex-general J. WalkerOliver received an unwelcome greeting from Anatoly, although he initially refused to return to the Bratva, he agreed to help one final time in order to gain assistance from the Bratva.
However, Anatoly later reminded Oliver that he swore an oath, making him a member of the Bratva for life whether or not he liked it. After Anatoly betrayed Ricardo Diazthe crime lord wiped out Bratva's entire Moscow branch, leaving Anatoly as it's sole member; their deaths were avenged when Emiko Adachi killed Diaz; albeit she killed Diaz in order to prevent him from revealing more about the Ninth Circle.
The initiation included 3 steps that one must pass, after surviving a violent beating from the other members. Oliver passed the test and gain a few new scars along the way. During the ceremony, Oliver had to proclaim his loyalty by stating "I have no home, no family, no name, I'm Bratva".
The group was shown to operate, within itself, on the basis of immediate reciprocal favors, although how the value of these is judged has not been revealed. Sign In Don't have an account?

More info.Other simplified versions of the name are Solntsevskaya Brotherhood and Solntsevskaya gang. The group is not a common gang, but a well organized criminal organization. The Solntsevskaya gang was founded in the late s by Sergei Mikhailova former waiter who had served a prison term for fraud.
Based in the Solntsevo District of Moscowthe gang recruited local unemployed, aggressive young men as foot soldiers and also made use of thief in law Dzhemal Khachidze to enhance their reputation amongst established criminals.
Controlling these transport hubs allowed the Solntsevo group to muscle in on the car import business. Together with the Orekhovskaya gang and other Slavic mobs, the Solntsevo made an alliance to drive the Chechens out.
The gang was at one point linked to criminal mastermind Semion Mogilevichthrough whom they laundered money. But a party at a Prague hotel, attended by Mikhailov as well as Uzbek drug trafficker Gafur Rakhimovwas raided by Czech police who received information that they were planning to kill Mogilevich there following a dispute.
Mogilevich himself was nowhere to be found, having received advance information about both groups' intentions. By the end of the s, the Solntsevskaya gang started moving into the banking sector, a move which enabled them to launder their money as well as get closer to the oligarchs.
The FBI was alerted to Ivankov's presence, however, and after a long investigation he was arrested and convicted of extortion, becoming the first thief-in-law to be convicted in the United States. While Ivankov was not as successful, his counterpart Odenussa has been controlling Russian organized crime in Atlanta for over 20 years, while avoiding prosecution. Odenussa has had a firm grip on the city, with an army of killers to back him up. Although not as large as the drug cartels of Mexico that have sent men to try and set up shop in Atlanta, Odenussa and his cohorts have out-gunned the Mexican drug cartels and the African American gangs in Atlanta.
But attempts to infiltrate Israeli politics were countered by vigilant law enforcement. The organization is also involved in the international cocaine trade, with its links to Colombian drug cartels brokered by the Cuntrera-Caruana Mafia clan. According to the US, as published during the Wikileaks scandalthe Solntsevo gang continues racketeering operations under the protection of the FSB.

Organized crime in Russia began in the imperial period of the tsarsbut it was not until the Soviet era that vory v zakone "thieves-in-law" emerged as leaders of prison groups in forced labor campsand their honor code became more defined. With the end of World War IIthe death of Joseph Stalinand the fall of the Soviet Unionmore gangs emerged in a flourishing black marketexploiting the unstable governments of the former Republics, and at its highest point, even controlling as much as two-thirds of the Russian economy.
In modern times, there are as many as 6, different groups,  with more than of them having a global reach. Criminals of these various groups are either former prison members, corrupt officials and business leaders, people with ethnic ties, or people from the same region with shared criminal experiences and leaders.
1. Solntsevskaya bratva
The Russian criminality can be traced back to Russia's imperial periodwhich began in the s, in the form of banditry and thievery. Most of the population were peasantsin poverty at the time, and criminals who stole from government entities and divided profits among the people earned Robin Hood -like status, being viewed as protectors of the poor and becoming folk heroes.
In time, the Vorovskoy Mir Thieves' World emerged as these criminals grouped and started their own code of conduct that was based on strict loyalty with one another and opposition against the government.
When the Bolshevik Revolution came around inthe Thieves' World was alive and active. Vladimir Lenin attempted to wipe them out, but failed, and the criminals survived into Joseph Stalin 's reign. During Stalin's reign as ruler, millions of people were sent to gulags Soviet labor campswhere powerful criminals worked their way up to become vorami v zakone "thieves-in-law".
These criminal elite often conveyed their status through complicated tattoos, symbols still used by Russian mobsters. After Hitler 's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War IIStalin was recruiting more men to fight for the nation, offering prisoners freedom if they joined the army. Many flocked to help out in the war, but this act betrayed codes of the Thieves' World that one must not ally with the government.
Those who chose not to fight in the war referred to the traitors as suka "bitch"and the traitors landed at the bottom of the "hierarchy". Outcast, the suki separated from the others and formed their own groups and power bases by collaborating with prison officials, eventually gaining the luxury of comfortable positions. Bitterness between the groups erupted into a series of Bitch Wars from to with many killed every day.
The prison officials encouraged the violence, seeing it as a way to rid the prisons of criminals. After the death of Stalin, around eight million inmates were released from gulags.
Those that survived the imprisonment and Bitch Wars became a new breed of criminal, no longer bound to the laws of the old Thieves' World. They adopted an "every-man-for-himself" attitude that meant cooperating with the government if necessary. This corruption was common during the Brezhnev eraand in the s, small illegal businesses sprang up throughout the country, with the government ignoring them, and the black market thrived.
Also during the s and s, the United States expanded its immigration policies, allowing Soviet Jewswith most settling in a southern Brooklyn area known as Brighton Beach sometimes nicknamed as "Little Odessa ". Here is where Russian organized crime began in the US.When you look at Moscow today you see a modern metropolis.
Back in the day during the chaotic switchover from communism, the country took a sensational nosedive into a big, stinking pile of shit. Russia, the country which sent the first man into space, now had old ladies lining up round the block to get a loaf of bread.
A crime wave terrorized the nation, and the law of the gun reigned supreme as criminal gangs ruled with their own sense of order and impunity. And chief amongst these was the Solntsevskaya Bratva — the Solntsevo Brotherhood. Sergei Anatolyevich Mikhailov was born in the Solntsevo neighbourhood of Moscow and started out working as a waiter at the Sovietskaya Hotel. It was a cushy job and one of the few spots you could get served alcohol after hours, and so was a place frequented by mobsters and other shady figures including Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, a businessman from Uzbekistan currently wanted by Interpol for trying to fix the Winter Olympics, as well as a crafty Jewish conman by the name of Semion Mogilevich.
He also met two brothers and small-time crooks, ex-boxers Viktor and Alexander Averin. Mikhailov came over fully to the Dark Side in when he was thrown in jail for an insurance scam he sold his motorbike then claimed it stolen.
After six months in the pen he came out and started to roll with his old hoodlum buddies including the Averin brothers. Before long he was the leader of their little crew, the Solntsevskaya named after the hood they grew up inwhich offered protection to underground card games and beat up any troublesome policemen who happened to get in the way.
It was a time of great change. In Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev passed the Law on Co-operatives, paving the way for the first private businesses to open in areas like the Rizhsky Market. Racketeers were not slow to catch up. Whereas before — when any kind of entrepreneurship had to be kept on the down-low — they could only prey on the black market, now all their victims were out in the open. The Moscow police logged over complaints of extortion that year but were stretched out too thin, too underfunded and had no idea what to do to be of any help.
Everyone seemed to be doing something that could get you a nice long spell in Siberia not that long ago. No-one knew what the fuck was going on. Meanwhile crime shot up as honest shopkeepers found themselves at the mercy of robbers, thieves and hooligans.
One such business was run by Vadim Rosenbaum, whose main enterprise was shipping computers over from France. He also had a side line dealing cocaine, smuggling it inside the computers. Rosenbaum originally came to Mikhas willingly to ask for protection against rival gangs. But the sharks could smell blood and as time went on he found himself trapped by his new partners. As their behavior got even more brazen and arrogant Rosenbaum had enough and got in touch with the other victims.
Together they went to the police, and in Mikhailov and Averin were arrested for extortion. But their case never made it to trial because Rosenbaum and the other witnesses suddenly changed their story, and in the two godfathers were freed.Recent Posts Professional CS:GO e-sports betting tips Affiliate tips Free daily sports prediction.

After seeing Jaina's key art, the leaked model with the Kul Tiras model, AND i think we've all be waiting to see what Jaina's been up to, I seriously think it will have something to do with Kul Tiras. Maybe Azshara will hang around as well. We could possibly be seeing something that would expand on the lore of the void, as it has been explored more in Legion. It will be revealed that the foolish surface dwellers of Azeroth have been ignoring their real enemy.
N'zoth rises, and with him the Black Empire will once more dominate the pathetic mortal races of Azeroth. N'dhgi ghu'hul uh'nah belore.
I hope the next expansion will be about old gods. We've been given so many hints throughout the expansion it would be a shame not to. I can't imagine that they wouldn't reveal the expansion.
Hopefully as part of that, they will include subraces for all races. I'm hoping they reveal the next expansion. I'm HOPING a new race will be added, as we haven't had one in quite some time. I think that they will reveal something that most people aren't expecting,like the backside of azeroth or another island with old god issues (like pandaria) or a 5th old god and i think that they will reveal one of those. I believe we will finally see a Kul Tiras related expansion since all the data discovered points to that.
Also, I hope for some Old Gods, Jaina's return, Zandalari maybe. Ive been dreaming of this for over 4 years now: Panda Druids. Blizzard please just let me give you that race change money and let me be a bear bear.
I hope Jaina or Azshara get some love for the next xpac. And maybe some sub-races that mentioned recently. Blizzard Entertainment Student Art Contests 2017 Be Prepared.
