Structur an composition[eedit | eedit soorce]

"They're not carefully structured Cosa Nostra-type families... They're loose structures of networks, but they draw on people from a number of different areas."
 — James Finckenauer, author o Russian Mafia In America[3]

Although maist Roushie creeminal groups vary in their structur, thare hae been attempts at tryin tae figur oot a model in hou they wirk. Ane such model, which coud be possibly oot-datit structur, as it is based on the auld style o Soviet creeminal enterprises, wirks oot like the follaein:

  1. Elite group: the leadership, aftentimes a vor or vory, manages an organises plans for operations.
  2. Support group: they set specific tasks for subordinate groups or chuise who does wha task.
  3. Security group: they are in chairge wi security an intelligence.
  4. Wirkin group: the individuals that actually carry oot the creemes; they are aften uninformit o the identity o the leadership.
