The Russian Mafia (Russian: Русская мафия) is an enemy faction in Hotline Miami series.


The Russian Mafia, often reffered to as the Bratva (Brotherhood) or Organizatsiya (Organization), is a loose term referring a number of organized crime syndicates originating in Russia. Structures and traditions in the Russian Mafia can vary wildly from syndicate to syndicate, but are typically divided into a similar basic hierarchy - the Pakhan(Godfather) is the head of the syndicate, along with various lieutenants and high-ranking soldiers known asAvtoritets (Brigadeers). Below them are the Boeviks (Warriors) who act as low-ranking muscle, andShestyorka (Associates) who do errands and odd jobs.

Not much information is given about the Miami Syndicate's history apart from that prior to the spring of 1989, it had allied itself with the Colombian Cartel and become the largest organized crime syndicate in Miami, Florida. The formation of the Russian mafia was most likely caused by an influx of Russians moving into the United States as a result of the Russo-American Coalition.

Events of Hotline Miami

The Russian Mafia is the mainly targeted by 50 Blessings and is finally and severely weakened by Jacket after destroying most of it's operations, and killing it's former and then current mob boss.

Events of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

The Russian Mafia is also present in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, during the scenes where Jake and is playable, in some of Richter's scenes, during Evan Wright's first scene and when ever the game involves either The Henchman orThe Son. In 1989 (simultaneous with the events of the first game) 50 Blessings target the Russian Mafia by getting Jakeand Richter to attack them. Locations include a news station they're either bribing or taking payment from, a meth lab, a USSR flag waving bar, an abandoned building housing USSR imported weapons, and a purple floored apartment full of sports and exercise equipment.

In 1991 The Son of the mafia's boss, decides to attack the Colombian Cartel in order to reclaim much of the Russian Mafia's former territory (due to the Mafia being drastically weakened in the first game) that the Colombians took over after the events of the first game, The Son also sends the Henchman (as his last mission, since the henchman wanted to leave the mafia) to clear a formerly allied gang, now allied with the Colombians, however the Fans find the henchman (who is under the influence of drugs), kill him and take his phone and when the Son calls to ask if the henchman wanted to return to the Mafia and gives the address of their location, the fans go to where the Mafia are based and kill many of their members, while the Son overdoses on a hallucinogenic drug and kills many of his own men and all the fans (exceptTony), after killing the fans, the Son walks off the building and falls to his death. It is very likely the rest of the Russian Mafia in Miami are killed when Miami is destroyed by a Nuclear Explosion.
