The Bratva are a faction in Watch Dogs 2. They are also known as the Russian Mafia and are based on the real life Russian Mafia.
The Bratva, or the Brotherhood, arrived in the 1980s as scouts for the Brighton Beach Mafia in Brooklyn, New York. San Francisco is one of the centers of money laundering operations via Russia and the United States, and they run brothels, traffic drugs and people, and commit other violent crimes, as other mafias do.
The Bratva engage in various criminal activities, mostly related to trafficking and cybercrime. They deal in drugs, arms and human trafficking. During the Human Conditions DLC, the Bratva attempt to extort money from hospitals using ransomware while using it as a distraction for their data theft, being led by Anton Bagdonov. In the No Compromise DLC, they are seen in business with Alan Jablonski—who is under the alias Alejandro Jackofski—a porn director who arranges passports for Russian illegals in exchange for performances.
