Semion Mogilevich - 'Boss of Bosses'

Semion Mogilevich is a Ukraine-born Russian organized crime boss and is described around the world as the "boss of bosses" of most Russian Mafia syndicates. The FBI has dubbed him as "the most dangerous mobster in the world".

Mogilevich has been accused of "weapons trafficking, contract murders, extortion, drug trafficking, and prostitution on an international scale". His net worth is estimated to exceed $10b.
In 2009, Mogilevich was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. He was later removed from the list due to the fact that he resides in a country with which the US has no extradition treaty. Interpol also lists Mogilevich on its list of Europe’s most wanted.

Unlike most of his peers, it's no secret where Mogilevich lives. Mogilevich resides in great luxury in Moscow in spite of the many international warrants issued against him. The crime boss is one of the subjects in Netflix's true-crime series 'World's Most Wanted'.
