In November 2007, Donald Trump attends the Moscow Millionaire Fair. Trump called upon Sergei Millian, president of the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce, earlier in the year to help organize his trip to Russia for the event.
In April 2016, Millian tells Russian news agency RIA Novosti that he and Trump signed a contract to develop real estate projects in Russia and other former Soviet states during their work together in 2007, but nothing was ever built.
Instead of Trump bringing his businesses to Russia, Russians brought themselves to his U.S. properties.
Nothing ever got built in Russia, but around 2007 and 2008, Russians “would buy up dozens of apartments in Trump properties in the U.S.,” Millian said. “The level of business amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars — what he received as a result of interaction with Russian businessmen,” Millian told ABC News last summer.USA Today
