    Default The Russian Mafia: Unmasking a Global Menace

    Link to the video (50 mins):

    Curiously he relies on a conversation with a Chechen "hitman" who was in the USA for several years plus a jail term, before his extradition to Russia, where the case "fell apart" so he was back home in the post-Gorbachev Russia.
