Mark Galeotti

From Russia with Hate

Known by their distinctive tattoos, the vory v zakone (translated as ‘thief in law’) have a long and dishonourable history as a criminal underclass in the Soviet Union and Russia. An expert on transnational crime and Russian security affairs, Mark Galeotti traces their trajectory in The Vory: Russia's Super Mafia from Gulag offenders to the age of the oligarch, all examined in today's eye-opening event with Trevor Royle.
