Gangsters and criminals began to take over Russian societies in the 1900's. It began with 'vory v zakone' or thieves-in-law who were leaders of the groups in the prisons. This was seen especially in the 'Gulag' or labour camps where Stalin sent criminals and political leaders for forced labour. These people formed larger groups and began ruling the criminal world.
