The Bulgarin Crime Syndicate was one of three Russian Mafia families in Liberty City, an international criminal organization, and they serve as the main group of antagonists in The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is led by Ray Bulgarin, who is a major figure in the global crime scene, and his right hand man Timur.


The gang was formed after Bulgarin immigrated to Liberty City in 1989, when he was deported for human trafficking. Bulgarin employed Niko Bellic to smuggle people into Italy from Eastern Europe until the ship sank. Bulgarin blamed Niko for the loss and sought to hunt him down. He was able to track Niko to Liberty City where he and his friend Dimitri Rascalov ambushed Niko and Bulgarin had his men kill Niko. However, with the help of Little Jacob, Niko was able to survive the ambush and escape. Bulgarin and Timur went to Maisonette 9 (owned by Gay Tony) where they met and employed Luis Lopez to take down Marki Ashvilli and his men. Bulgarin then attempts to kill Luis to take his diamonds for himself but Luis survived. Later, Dimitri informed Bulgarin of a hostage exchange between Luis and Niko. Bulgarin went to ambush the deal but both Luis and Niko survived the ordeal once again. Following this, Bulgarin went to the Ancelottis and they decided to force Luis to kill Tony. But Luis instead killed an enforcer of the Ancelotti's and survived Bulgarin's third ambush. Realizing that Luis and Tony survived, Bulgarin attemps to escape by plane but Luis and Tony decides to kill him. Luis went to the carnival and killed Timur. He then jumped on the plane and killed Bulgarin. It is likely that after his death the gang dissolved.
