Mafia clans of New York: Genovese and Gambino

Shot from the series "The Birth of the Mafia" (episode "Equal Opportunities")


Article Mafia in New York talked about the emergence of the mafia in this city and the famous "reformer" Lucky Luciano. Now let's start a story about the five mafia clans of New York and the Chicago Syndicate. We remember that there are currently 35 mafia "families" in 26 cities in the United States, but most of them are "vassals" of one of the five New York or Chicago syndicates.

Genovese's "family"


Members of the Genovese clan call themselves the "Ivy League of Cosa Nostra" ("Ivy League" - an association of eight most prestigious US universities). This is the "family" of the heirs of Morelli and Sayetti, which, after the massacre of Masserio and Maranzani, was headed by Lucky Luciano himself. Vito Genovese became his deputy, and the position of "family advisor" (Consigliere) went to Frank Costello. Both of them later ran the "family".

Genovese, who later gave his name to this clan, was a native of Campania (that is, in the former, not yet reformed mafia Luciano, he did not have the slightest chance for such a position). It was Vito, on the orders of Luciano, who killed Gaetano Reyna, which marked the beginning of the "Castellamarian War". Later, he became a participant in the murders of Giuseppe Masserio and Salvatore Maranzano (this was described in the article Mafia in New York ).


Vito Genovese

It was he who ended up in prison, Lucky Luciano, appointed the boss of his clan, but due to the investigation opened against him by prosecutor Thomas Dewey, Genovese was forced to leave for Italy. Settling in the town of Nola near Naples, he donated $ 250 to the needs of the municipality and invested in the construction of a power plant. Mussolini even awarded him the Order of the Crown of Italy. Genovese was also suspected of organizing the murder of anti-fascist journalist Carlo Tresca in the United States on the orders of the Italian authorities in 1943. However, he also did not forget about his previous affairs, and, in order not to lose his qualifications, began to deal with the supply of raw opium from Turkey.

Good relations with the fascist authorities in Italy did not prevent him from forging an alliance with the Sicilian boss Caldogero Vizzini - thereby ensuring the unhindered movement of American troops from Gele and Licate to Palermo (see article The "old" Sicilian mafia). Together with him, he established the sale of food and alcoholic beverages on the black market. It is not surprising that during Operation Husky (the seizure of Sicily by the allies) Genovese suddenly found himself in the US Army as an interpreter. But greed let him down: having entered into an agreement with the American quartermasters, he organized the sale of the property of military warehouses. He was arrested and taken to the United States in 1945, where he was tried on murder charges, but released in 1946 due to lack of evidence. However, the head of the "family" was already Frank Costello, who was not going to yield to Genovese. But the "Prime Minister" still had to leave - after, by order of Genovese, an attempt was made on his life by Vincente Gigante.

Mafia clans of New York: Genovese and Gambino
Vincente Gigante, former professional boxer (25 matches in 1944-1947), boss of the Genovese family in 1985-2002. There were mafiosi and three brothers Vincent, but the fourth became a priest. In 1986, Gigante was an ally of the Lucchese clan (which we will talk about in the next article): together they tried to kill John Gotti as well. To avoid conviction, Gigante pretended to be crazy, but in 1997 he was still sentenced to 12 years, in 2002 he confessed to the simulation. Died in prison hospital in December 2005

Costello then survived, but left his post - after he lost an influential ally, who was deported to Italy, Joe Adonis. But already in 1959, Genovese was arrested and sentenced to 15 years. An incident took place in the prison, thanks to which the previously unknown name "Cosa Nostra" became widely known. In the spring of 1962, Vito Genovese kissed his subordinate, Joseph Valachi, on the lips. In the Sicilian mafia, a kiss on the lips is considered a death sentence ("Kiss of Death"). Genovese suspected Valachi of wanting to cooperate with the investigation (the fact is that Joseph was a friend of a bandit who was killed on the orders of this boss). Frightened, Valachi actually began to testify in exchange for protection. It was he who told about the new American mafia - "Cosa Nostra".


Joseph Valachi, a mobster with a "rich biography." Back in the 10s. In the twentieth century, he began his criminal career as a driver in the gang "The Minutemen" ("The Militias"). Was the bodyguard of Salvatore Maranzano, after whose murder he went into the service of the winner - Lucky Luciano

We add that a kiss on the cheek, according to the Sicilian tradition, is a promise to treat a person as an equal. And here we see a kiss of the hand - the recognition of a subordinate position:


Shot from the movie "The Godfather"

In 1969 Vito Genovese died in prison of myocardial infarction.

Frank Costello was also not a Sicilian - he came to the United States from Calabria. In New York, he initially obeyed the "artichoke king" Ciro Terranov (see article Mafia in New York ). He then became a partner of Luciano, with whom he became subordinate to Giuseppe (Joe) Massaria. During Prohibition, he collaborated with Irish gangs (as Al Capone said, “nothing personal, just business”). Having entered into an agreement in Louisiana with the local boss Silvestro Carollo, he deployed a network of slot machines here. After the arrest of Luciano and departure to Italy, Genovese became the head of the clan.


Frank Costello, Prime Minister of the Mob in his youth

Curiously, the almighty "prime minister" was depressed and even visited a psychotherapist for two years. In the end, having ceded his post to Genovese, Costello lived peacefully in Manhattan, maintaining a high prestige and periodically advising former "partners". He died in his bed in 1973 from myocardial infarction.

It is believed that it was the Genovese clan that served as the prototype for the "Corleone family" from the famous movie saga "The Godfather". Recall that the Morello-Terranova family was from the Sicilian town of Corleonese. And the alleged prototypes of Don Corleone (collective image) are called Frank Costello and Vito Genovese. Moreover, Marlon Brando said in an interview that, playing Corleone, he imitated the manner of speaking and the voice of Costello (the actor saw him during the broadcasts of the so-called "Hearing of Kefauver" as part of an investigation into the activities of mafia structures).


Frank Costello at the Kefauver Hearing


Marlon Brando as Don Corleone

However, the Scottish historian John Dickey is the author of the book “History the mafia, ”argues that both Mario Puzo's novel and Coppolo’s film are typical“ branchy cranberries ”. They have nothing to do with the real, real-life mafia or Cosa Nostra:

“Part of the funds for the shooting of The Godfather was provided by mafia structures. The filming of this film, in which much is a figment of the imagination, of course, required the consent of influential families. The real mafia is not shown in The Godfather, but there are a lot of invented clichés. "

The mafia money spent on this film paid off with interest. One New York newspaper wrote in 1973:

“After the release of the movie The Godfather, Carlo Gambino began to enjoy immense popularity. At a recent wedding on Long Island, a married couple knelt in front of him and kissed his hands. When the owner made a toast to Gambino's health, the choir sang a melody from The Godfather. One reporter asked the "boss" if he liked The Godfather movie.

"Good, very good," muttered the decrepit king of gangsters and grinned. "


Frank Sinatra in the center, Carlo Gambino on the right

It is curious that the famous Carlo Gambino was also once a member of the Genovese clan. He later became the head of another New York "family" to which he "gave" his name. We will talk about it now.

Clan Gambino


The "lieutenant" of this clan, then headed by Vincent Mangano, was a native of the Campaign, Giuseppe Antonio Doto. This gangster had a very high opinion of his appearance, and therefore he adopted the "pseudonym" Joe Adonis.


Joe Adonis

Some researchers argue that during the "Castellamarian War" it was him who ceased to trust Luciano Giuseppe Masserio, who ordered to eliminate his deputy. However, Adonis then chose the more promising Luciano and took part in the murder of Masserio himself.

Meanwhile, after the defeat of the Murder Corporation (this was described in the previous article - Mafia in New York ) the head of this division of Cosa Nostra Alberto Anastasia was left out of work. He felt very uncomfortable then, and therefore, after the United States entered World War II, he decided to "change the situation." He enlisted in the Navy and served as a technical sergeant until 1944. According to the memories of people who knew him closely, about the time spent on navy, Anastasia had the most unpleasant memories: he always spoke of American sailors with contempt, calling them "inflated turkeys."

Back in New York, the former head of Murder Incorporated organized the assassinations of Vincent Mangano and his brother, after which he became the head of the mafia "family", now known as the Gambino clan. These were the "heirs" of Salvatore D'Aquilo. The clan was based on immigrants from Palermo, who at first considered themselves almost aristocrats and looked down on the mafiosi of clans from other Sicilian cities, considering them "rednecks". Now this family was headed by a Calabrian, but there was no one to blame him for this.


Alberto Anastasia

In the struggle for the head of the Genovese clan (which became vacant after the arrest of Lucky Luciano), Anastasia (like Joe Adonis) supported Frank Costello - Vito Genovese's rival, whose ally, in turn, was Carlo Gambino. This rivalry ended in defeat for him: Adonis was expelled from the United States, Costello, after the assassination attempt, chose to cede the head of Genovese, Anastasia himself was shot to death in a hairdresser on October 25, 1957 on the orders of Carlo Gambino, who took the place of the head of this clan.

The head of detectives of the New York Police Department, Albert Seedman, compared Carlo Gambino with

"A rattlesnake that curls up and pretends to be dead until the danger has passed."

Joseph Bonanno called him "obsequious and obsequious man" and told how Gambino smiled obsequiously when Anastasia hit him in public.

Gambino himself said:

“You have to be a lion and a fox at the same time. The fox is cunning enough to spot traps, and the lion is strong enough to take out enemies. "

As a result, as we know, both Anastasia and Bonanno tragically underestimated this man, who, having come to power, for some time made his "family" the most influential in New York.

By the way, this boss's statement is also known:

“Judges, politicians, lawyers have the right to steal. Anyone but the mafia. "


Carlo Gambino

Carlo Gambino was known for his negative attitude towards drugs. Under him, in addition to New York (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Quinx, Long Island), clan branches appeared in Chicago, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. He took control of the port of Brooklyn and shared the New York airport with the Lucchese family. In addition, his firms monopolized garbage collection in 5 New York boroughs.

Gambino's successor in 1976 was Paul Castellano, a very colorful man, 190 cm tall and weighing 150 kg, who built an exact copy of the White House on Staten Island (opposite New York).


Paul Castellano

After the mafia war in Sicily in 1981-1983. the Gambino clan was joined by members of the defeated Inzerillo "family" who had fled from this island. Looking ahead, let's say that in the 2000s, some of them returned to Sicily, becoming a "link" in the clan's transatlantic drug trade.

The main legal business of the clan under Castellano was the production of concrete. But he did not forget about the main "business", and in 1984 he was arrested on charges of murdering 24 people. Paul Castellano was released on bail of $ 2 million, but on December 16, 1985, he and his deputy, Tom Bilotti, were shot to death by order of John Gotti, who led the clan.


John Gotti

The biography of "Elegant John" is not even proletarian, but Lumpen's. A large Italian family (13 children), street fights, "gutting" trucks at the airport, car theft (once he even tried to steal a concrete mixer, but it fell on his feet, chopping off the tips of his fingers - he was limping all his life). In total, 5 arrests by age 21. At the age of 28, he was caught stealing a batch of cigarettes worth 50 thousand dollars and was sentenced to 4 years. Nothing foreshadowed a brilliant future. But after leaving prison, he led a small gang carrying out the orders of the Gambino clan. In 1973 he was again imprisoned for complicity in a murder - it was a check before being admitted to the "family": he was sentenced to 4 years, released after two. But he was already "in authority" and was appointed Caporegime - the fifth step in the mafia hierarchy (the highest is the first). Participated in the development of a plan to rob the Lufthansa office at Kennedy Airport (production - $ XNUMX million). But with the new boss of the Gambino clan - Paul Castellano, the relationship did not work out. Not only did Castellano not even give hundreds of dollars from Lufthansa's millions, he also, faithful to the precepts of Carlo Gambino, refused to trade in drugs. In general, I had to kill both Castellano and his deputy.

Gotti took the place of the head of the clan and enjoyed wealth and power for five years, but on December 11, 1990, he was arrested along with his deputy, Sam Gravano, who unexpectedly testified against the boss. Gotti was sentenced to life imprisonment. In 2002, he died in prison from throat cancer.

At the beginning of the 2003st century, the Albanians became dangerous rivals of the Gambino clan, one of whom (Alex Rudage) in XNUMX even seized the name table of the deceased Gotti in the Italian restaurant Rios (East Harlem): this was described in the article Albanian crime clans outside Albania.

In recent years, the Gambino clan (like other "families" in New York) has been trying to work "in silence", without attracting the attention of the authorities and journalists unnecessarily. The resonance was even stronger when on March 12, 2019, the head of this clan, Francesco Cali, nicknamed Franky Boy, was killed near his home in the prestigious Todt Hill area (it is curious that it was in this area that Don Corleone's house was placed by the scriptwriters of The Godfather) ... A certain Anthony Camello fired several bullets in Cali, and then ran over in a car. Initially, there were suggestions that the murder was the work of mafiosi from Sicily or competitors from Mexican drug cartels. However, it was later revealed that Camello believed that "Frankie Kid" was a member of the so-called "Deep state". He also considered this to be the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, whom he had previously tried to "arrest".

In the next article we will finish the story about the mafia clans of New York, and also talk about the "Chicago Syndicate".

            Write an article about the origin, flowering and extinction of such a "Russian crime phenomenon" - kingpin... Everyone has heard about them and even say that they know everything, but a full-fledged article would be interesting and informative to many. To weed out many "myths" about them. And maybe even try to give your value judgment about why kingpin did not take root in the United States and the rest of the world. (Yaponchik spent 10 years in a US prison, but "thieves' concepts" never spread across the US)

        Yes, Ryzhov's cycle of "mafia" articles unsettles thinking. Of course, at one time I read a book by Mario Puzo and I even owned it, and watched films - there is not one there! But the fact that the mafia in America is so vast and indestructible could not possibly have been assumed. What a scope! And nothing can be done.

          And nothing can be done.

          Nothing can be done about street punks - there will always be marginal families supplying staff to replenish it. There is nothing to be done with situational crime either - there will always be a person who periodically confuses someone else's with his own. I'm not even talking about purely violent crimes without a selfish motive, for example, from "personal hostile relationships" or "from hooligan motives." Nothing can be done with them, they will always be. People tend not only to love, but also to hate each other and the whole world.
          And organized crime can be eliminated, at least, crime of this magnitude. Easy peasy. Isolate criminals from the authorities and law enforcement agencies, and these very law enforcement agencies will quickly disperse and transplant both the "mafia" and the "Camorra" and other "triads" with the "Yakuza".
          Valery stubbornly refuses to pay attention to this main component of organized crime - corruption. It seems that I will never get an answer to the question: who did work for whom - the police for the mafia or the mafia for the police? Did the conditional mayor of New York receive the Chief Justice of the District of Columbia a share of the conditional Lucky Luciano, or did he pay the common fund himself? How high did the tentacles of this "La Piovra" get into power (remember this movie with Michele Placido?), Which of the US presidents and how closely were they directly connected with the American organized crime group?
          It's a pity, of course, but ... anyway, thanks to the author, the article is a plus. smile

            How can you do nothing with street punks? Yes, street punks are law enforcement agents! The spy always needs alcohol and drugs, and in all countries of the world, law enforcement officers with honest and noble persons hire that spy at the right political moment in order to publicly desecrate a monument on someone's cell phone camera that happened to be at the scene of a crime, paint it on a synagogue fascist signs, write threats, set fire to any building or car, or beat up the foreigners who have come in large numbers, shouting fascist slogans. Are these public actions not necessary for politicians to organize a certain public opinion? Needed! And on the instructions of politicians, law enforcement officers organize them - the politicians themselves will not get dirty, and their qualifications are different.
            So punks are the primary and very malleable political material. And precisely for this reason, and also because of its cheapness, no one will ever really fight with that material. On the contrary, law enforcement officers will do everything to create and maintain the punks in the right condition and quantity as their own working tool, continuing to supervise individuals during the transition of the latter from the larva to the adult state. For many years I have been observing all this within a radius of 100 meters from my house.

              Quote: depressant
              punks are primary and very malleable political material

              But not only political. Just stuff. Universal. Anyone can turn out of punks, for example, including your humble servant the Master of the Trilobite, it all depends on the circumstances. At the age of 12, I was expelled from the pioneers for swearing at teachers, smoking, disrupting lessons, dirty jokes about classmates, and so on. I was a well-read boy from a respectable family, but I got in touch with a bad company, in which I gained a certain prestige and thus I managed to maintain it.
              And at 14 I was already elected secretary of the school's Komsomol committee. Perestroika, new trends and all that. Then I quit smoking and did not smoke for ten years.
              Span is a product of the life of society, inevitable, like the release of carbon dioxide when breathing. Most of those who have joined this stratum, having committed several minor crimes, in the end still remain in society, although they acquire specific skills and concepts, moral attitudes. But some of them are inevitably drawn into criminal activity, forming a cadre of professional criminals. I draw your attention to the word "some" and the word "inevitable". The word "professional" in this case does not mean high criminal qualifications, only that this category of citizens has the main income from the commission of crimes.
              Of course, punks can be used for their own purposes, and therefore are used by everyone - both law enforcement agencies and business and "personnel" criminals and even the official authorities, that is, politicians. It is impossible to fight it, or rather to defeat it. She will always be. And really nothing can be done with it.
              But organized crime can and should be fought. Simply waging this fight with the forces of exclusively law enforcement agencies is like chopping off the heads of a hydra. This is exactly what I wrote about.

                  hi Lyudmila Yakovlevna. Why do you think the wolf arose and what does the expression "man to man" mean? Why did the people of the Stone Age quickly find companions and partners - dogs?
                  To get by with just a "scheme", you can refer to the Soviet cartoon "Mowgli"
                  Remember, when Raksha introduces his brood to the flock council and Sher Khan appears ... All youth the flocks are in a stupor, and only three join ... Including Bagheera.
                  Which declares: "The law of the jungle says that the life of a cub can be bought, and .... I offer the bull that I have just killed."
                  All! Change of public mood: "Where is the bull, Bagheera?"
                  And Sherkhan is forced to leave.
                  Most of the punks then become worthy people.

                        Firstly, I will not open the door, because due to its flimsy it is quite possible to talk through it. Swindlers are already walking! Open up, they say.
                        Secondly, I know how to demand in a vile official voice: "Speak!" People immediately understand everything and mutter some sentences, which, since I haven't opened, I can take in my mailbox. I bark as if on a parade ground: "Thank you, don't!" - and with a grin I wait for the receding steps. But there are no steps. Because the swindlers, hiding, expect that I, consumed by curiosity, will open the door and go to check the box. Tired of waiting, they leave.
                        There is no ax, they will put him behind the ax. There is a latch on the door, with a latch. I am not afraid, I am used to living in a state of danger, I do not lose my vigilance. Our entrance is criminal. What kind of femininity can we talk about here? Occasionally I meet feminine women on the street, they can be seen from a kilometer away. The rest are extremely tense and anxious. So, to the butt wassat )))

    Yes, the street punks are the law enforcers' henchmen! The spy always needs alcohol and drugs, and in all countries of the world, law enforcement officers with honest and noble persons hire that spy at the right political moment in order to publicly desecrate a monument on someone's cell phone camera that happened to be at the scene of a crime, paint it on a synagogue fascist signs, write threats, set fire to any building or car, or beat up large numbers of foreigners, shouting fascist slogans.

    Lyudmila Yakovlevna, I don't even know to be offended or laugh at such an "opus"!
    If we take that ordinary people think so about the police, then I modestly state that you think too well of the internal affairs bodies! Do you have a lot of chances to stop a brave young man who flaunts in front of his girlfriend under "shafe" trying to cope with natural needs from the roof of a 9-storey building or write her a love message of 10 letters with 10 errors?
    By and large, a simple man in the street will pass by, an employee, because of his "professional deformation", will stop. By the way, the very presence of a police squad is effective. We even have a monument in Yekaterinburg that was guarded around the clock! Kind people poured blue paint, I personally, like the numerous garrison, wrote a report that “it was not me who doused it” - insanity! Now by political will. The executive power and local self-government may have the "insidious plans" described by you, the only problem is that the police officers are your neighbors, with the same troubles and problems they are corny on the drum! Since any crime, graffiti and much more on the operational service area, patrol route, etc. - this is a penalty! So to any such proposal - the answer will be "smolder the forest"!
    Now on agents - there is no money to cover up corruption and economic objects, on the line of NON, etc. And you about the punks, in fact, everything is organized on other principles - enthusiasm and human shortcomings than the maintenance of the agent apparatus.
    Well, somewhere like that.

      Eh, no, Vladislav! ... I meant completely different bodies - a structure with sufficient political powers. Or a police step with criminal capabilities. The fact that the line police are powerless and, by and large, only arrives at a "nodding analysis" at the scene of the event, I understand this perfectly well.
      By the way, a funny case, which I have already told, but I will not be too lazy to recall in confirmation. One day a loud ringtone was heard in the corridor, and I, after looking through the peephole, pulled my angry carcass out the door to suggest. Precinct! The district policeman checked the counters! ..
      I silently stared at him, like a cobra ready to attack, and he, the poor fellow, having put out the call, began to explain to me that the tenants (two girls) had gone somewhere in the middle apartment, the owners did not respond to their mobile about the next they were afraid to go - suddenly there are corpses, and the people are now competent in relation to such situations, they turned to the police, so he first checks the meter, whether the equipment is working, and if it works, then the corresponding conclusion, but not working - is different. I continued to be silent, without specifying what these conclusions were, and the district police officer added that an accidental call had now occurred, sorry, that happened loudly. I silently closed the door behind me. I remembered how, having no sins behind me, I was very afraid of the Soviet militia.
      Linear police (precinct) - executors of the will of either the political law enforcement structure, or the criminalized own bosses.
      Here is a case that falls under the latter definition. Several years ago, in the middle of the night, when everything was still good, drunken Tajiks arranged a loud loud "fun" on the playground - where are our drug addicts! I called the police department in charge of our village. So, they say, and so, they do not let you sleep, they react to the comments of the tenants with laughter, come, disperse, tie ...
      Believe it or not, after half a minute, just enough to make a call to someone, the "fun" shut up! Just now violent, drunk Tajiks rose as if on command and quietly disappeared into the darkness of the night, as if they had never existed! And no one came. It's clear what happened.
      And here is a case supervised by a political law enforcement structure. There were some elections, and one night they caught fire: another tractor in the courtyard of the housing and communal services - watched from the eastern window the process of its burning; some incomprehensible establishment of communication in two houses from mine, went to look (it was hard to see from the western window). And the next morning it turned out that the kindergarten was also set on fire, but quickly extinguished. The people were outraged by the arson of the kindergarten - for what?!? Apparently, next time the kindergarten will not be touched. According to forecasts, by the autumn elections, once again and in several places at once, including the office, the filling plant for varnishes and paints will catch fire. Previous times it was fun, grandiose and crowded, with fire brigades and crowds of fans. And you want to say that all this was done by a politicized punks? Like this, by itself? )))

    And organized crime can be eliminated, at least, crime of this magnitude. Easy peasy. Isolate criminals from the authorities and law enforcement agencies, and these very law enforcement agencies will quickly disperse and transplant both the "mafia" and the "Camorra" and other "triads" with the "Yakuza".

    Who are they "WEREBERS IN RUNNING" do you know? - remember the crime in the USSR ... "Cotton business", "Eliseevsky grocery store No. 1" and so on and so on ... People "holding legitimate power in their hands" themselves were "the source of the mafia" - how much $, rubles and precious metals were found on searches from the clerks (officials). If you want a comparison from nature - Aphids (crime), ANTS (werewolves in uniform), LADYBIRD (honest cops), LEAF (State).

    We're in a world, our very own
    Sharing a love that only few have ever known
    Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
    Deep velvet nights when we are one
    Speak softly, love, so no one hears us but the sky
    The vows of love we make will live until we die
    My life is yours and all because
    You came into my world with love so softly love
    Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
    Deep velvet nights when we are one
    Speak softly, love, so no one hears us but the sky
    The vows of love we make will live until we die

        Yes, the melody is brilliant. By her own. Even words are not needed. And often I caught myself on the fact that the vocals just bother me. She, the melody, is about life and death, about the transience of time, the inevitability of the end. But, forcing you to look over your past with your mind's eye, with a slight nostalgia of sounding, it convinces that within the framework of your ideas about the essence of being, you live a wonderful, significant life, and in general - life is beautiful!

    Yes, the melody is brilliant. By her own. Even words are not needed. And often I caught myself on the fact that the vocals just bother me. She, the melody, is about life and death, about the transience of time, the inevitability of the end. But, forcing you to look over your past with your mind's eye, with a slight nostalgia of sounding, it convinces that within the framework of your ideas about the essence of being, you live a wonderful, significant life, and in general - life is beautiful!
    I would have such confidence.

    Taki is beautiful yes

                    You have illuminated the problem from an unexpected angle. Of course, I had no doubt that the palace in Gelendzhik was gon. Just purely intuitive. Therefore, I never spoke about this. Only now did I go over as a component of domestic policy, designed to divert attention from something really important. But it never crossed my mind to assess its safety, taking into account the possibility of shelling from the sea. But what about the Sochi residence then?

    Gotti took the place of the head of the clan and enjoyed wealth and power for five years, but on December 11, 1990, he was arrested along with his deputy, Sam Gravano, who unexpectedly testified against the boss.

    Unexpectedly, except for the author. Graviano was given to listen to the wiretaps recorded by the police of Gotti's meetings with gang members in which the latter was unequivocally preparing the murder of Graviano.
    Teflon boss Gotti is the most unlucky of the mafia bosses. His obsession with appearing on the covers, being a hero of TV reports, a small mind and a very long tongue brought his family down to the defeat of the police

But I sincerely ask you not to switch to post-Soviet when every fourth person was determined to break off the bourgeois, when the country, or rather the Ministry of Finance, was in shock.

    "The resonance was all the stronger when on March 12, 2019, the head of this clan, Francesco Cali, nicknamed Franky Boy, was murdered outside his home in the prestigious Todt Hill area."
    The killer is a certain Anthony Camello. “Initially, there were speculations that this murder was the work of mafiosi from Sicily or competitors from Mexican drug cartels. However, later it turned out that Camello believed that 'Little Frankie' was a member of the so-called 'deep government' (Deep state).

    Does the US Deep State carefully separate itself from the Mafia, and the Mafia from the Deep State? Agreement? Well, except that the mafia is in the wings. On occasion.
