US Federal prosecutors this week announced charges against more than two dozen alleged Russian mobsters for racketeering, running an illegal gambling business and…chocolate smuggling.

Razhden Shulaya, the alleged leader of a Soviet mafia syndicate, was arrested on Wednesday.

Authorities describe him as a “vor v zakone”, which translates into “thief-in-law” and elite order of Soviet criminals.

“I understand what they accused me of, but I just don’t understand why,” the 40-year-old Shulaya, a Russian national, said through a translator after the judge asked him if he understood the charges contained in the seven-count indictment against him and other members of the New York City-based “Shulaya Enterprise.”

Authorities also referred to the organization as especially violent, with  allegations that including using a female member to seduce men, incapacitate them with gas and rob them.

In a statement released by acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim, he accused the Shulaya Enterprise of engaging in a “panoply of crimes around the country.” And referred to the case as “one of the first federal racketeering charges ever brought against a Russian ‘vor.’”
