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.
