Here's who's doing business with the bad guys.

On July 13, Pfizer closed a joint venture agreement with Russian 
pharmaceutical company NovaMedica.

Boeing has been in Russia for decades. About five years ago, it 
announced plans to invest $27 billion over the next 30 years. In July 
2015, an agreement was signed between Russian titanium manufacturer 
VSMPO-Avisma Corporation, Boeing and the Ural Federal University for 
joint research and development projects.

Ford has been in Russia for 13 years. In April 2015, the joint 
Russian-American venture Ford Sollers launched the production of the 
Ford Transit. The American brand launched four new vehicles in Russia 
last year, including the Focus and Fiesta models sold here.

U.S. companies with an existing presence in Russia include, PepsiCo PEP 
+0.03%, Procter&Gamble, McDonald's, Mondelez International, General 
Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Cargill, Alcoa, and General Electric. GE 
recently signed a joint venture with oil firm Rosneft  in expectation 
that Washington will actually one day lift sanctions on oil firms.

Morgan Stanley, not Trump International, is a yuuuuge American investor 
in Russian real estate, according to Knight Frank. In April, a fund 
controlled by Morgan Stanley began negotiations to acquire several 
shopping centers in Moscow. That same month, their real estate investing 
fund acquired the Metropolis in Moscow for $1.2 billion from Capital 
Partners, a Kazakhstan developer.​
