The Solntsevskaya Bratva (Russian: Солнцевская братва), or simply Bratva, is a powerful Russian Mafia organization. Oliver Queen is one of the highest-ranking members (a captain), due to the fact that he saved Anatoly Knyazev, the leader of the Bratva, from Anthony Ivo during his time on Lian Yu.
The group operates, within itself, on the basis of immediate reciprocal favors, although how the value of these is judged has not been revealed. For example, to get a meeting with The Count through Alexi Leonov, Oliver is asked to kill a disobedient underling of Leonov. Anatoly Knazev, in Moscow in "Keep Your Enemies Closer", seems to act primarily out of friendship for Oliver, rather than according to this code, although he does expect Oliver to provide his own finance.
Due to his fallout with Alexi, Oliver doesn't expect to still be a member, although it is not confirmed whether or not he is still considered a member by Anatoly.
