Russian 'Mafia', Albanian 'Mafia', Mexican 'Mafia', blah blah, blah. - Bullfeathers.
There's only one Mafia, period. The real Mafia should sue in Federal and/or the World Court for copyright & trademark infringement.
Actually they are separate. The Russian mafia works independently of the Albanian Mafia. The same for the Serbian Mafia (Black Hand - named in a court case several years ago), the Italian mafia etc...and different but yes they work together. They also work with international organizations.....and you know the rest.
