Events of GTA San Andreas
The Russian Mafia is one of the gangs affiliated with C.R.A.S.H. and Big Smoke, alongside the Ballas, Los Santos Vagos, and the San Fierro Rifa. Compare to the other gangs in the 'league', the Russian Mafia is a more 'secondary' gang in the partnership, acting more as a support than an official member.
With the gang's arrival to Los Santos, they claim Atrium for themselves. They are later attacked at their territory by Big Smoke (then still a member of GSF) and Carl Johnson. They are also attacked by the later during a deal with the Ballas, during which they are dressed like mechanics. Both the Russians and the Ballas fail to stop Johnson from ruining the meeting.
They make a final appearance at Big Smoke's Crack Palace, attempting to protect Big Smoke and eliminate Carl Johnson. Ultimately, the Russians, alongside the other gangs, are defeated.
