The term Vory refers to Russian organized crime. In fact, the Russian mob calls itself “Vory v Zakone,” which translates to “thieves following a codex” or “thieves inside of law.”
Despite this, a lot of Europeans and Americans still call the Vory the “Russian Mafia”.
The Vory is comprised of:
The Red Vory, which has strong connections to the government of Russian Republic, and the exiled White Vory in western Europe and otherwise outside the Rodina.
Both factions hate each other’s but frequently have to work together, because a lot of the products (weapons, BTLs, chemical drugs, prostitutes, stolen artifacts and resources) sold by the White Vory come originally from the Red Vory in Eastern Europe.
