CRIMINAL CODE
© 2009 L.E. VISION
Leonid Bilunov, Paris
For the first time ever, the vori v zakone, (thieves by law),
former heads of Russia's criminal underworld, share their story with the world. The thugs who transformed into reputable businessmen reveal in the most intimate detail how they came to influence Russia's economy, and how they used their vast wealth to build up a political base in a land that once treated them as common criminals. Now with a strong base at home, they are eager to embark on a new crusade to spread their influence over the rest of the world.
Criminal Code probes their chilling history, and penetrates the mechanisms of their powerful organizations. It shows how powerful men have crawled out from the underworld to create a shadow state that rivals the modern Russian Federation in its wealth and power.
