I’ve also found some interesting stuff on the Sapir Organization that was founded by (the late) Tamir Sapir.
In 2007, Zina Sapir, daughter of Tamir, married Rotem Rosen. Rosen was CEO of the Sapir Organization from 2009 to 2017 and the controlling shareholder and director of ASRR Capital from 2014 to June 2017, when he sold his shares to brother-in-law Alex Sapir.

Rosen is also in business with billionaire Ferit Sahenk, owner of Zuma Restaurants.
Rotem Rosen was also the "right hand man" of diamond magnate Lev Leviev: https://therealdeal.com/new-research/topics/people/rotem-rosen/


See Lev Leviev and Trump.



Self-pronounced Putin’s friend Lev Leviev’s primary residence is a $70 million home in London.
Leviev’s holding company, Africa Israel Investments, owns, owned or held stake in a large amount of New York real estate, besides a diamond boutique on Madison Avenue.

In 2008, Lev Leviev sold $710 million in Manhattan real estate to a subsidiary of the 88 Queensway Group.
In September 2008, China Sonangol purchased the JP Morgan building for $150 million. Rotem Rosen, CEO of AFI-USA, signed the deed.

In September 2008, China Sonangol paid Leviev’s companies $50 million (in addition to taking on half the building’s $720 million debt) for a 49% stake in the former New York Times Building.
In August 2011, Leviev’s company sold the top 12 floors of the former New York Times Building for $160 million to the Blackstone Group, the largest private landlord in the USA.
In May 2015, Kushner Companies (of Jared Kushner) announced the purchase of the remaining 51% share of the 250,000-square-foot retail condo of the building for $295 million from Leviev’s Africa-Israel USA and private equity firm Five Mile Capital.

In 2013, Rotem Rosen and Alex Sapir accompanied Trump on his visit to Moscow, where they met Azeri-born, Moscow-based oligarch Aras Agalarov – an ally of Putin - and his “pop singer” son Emin Agalarov.
Emin Agalarov spent $20 million on Miss Universe contest in 2013 (so he could sing for a large public): https://medium.com/mosaic2/diamond-kings-luxury-condos-corrupt-cops-and-chinese-spies-e429def34a66
(archived here: http://archive.is/qazb5)


In 2014, Ivanka also visited Moscow and met Emin Agalarov.

See Rotem Rosen, Aras Agalarov, Donald and Alex Sapir in Moscow, 2013.



In June 2013, Trump hosted a dinner at The Palazzo, Las Vegas (owned by Trump’s biggest campaign financier Sheldon Adelson) for billionaire developer Aras Agalarov, and his son, pop singer Emin Agalarov. Also present were Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and Ike Kaveladze, an executive of Agalarov's Crocus International.
After the dinner, a group including included Trump, Emin, Nana Meriwether and her date Alex Soros (son of George Soros) went for an after party. Emin chatted with Alex Soros and invited him to Moscow.

The next night, when the Miss USA pageant was staged, Trump hit the stage to announce that the next Miss Universe pageant would be held coming November in Russia. In front of the audience, the Agalarovs and Trump signed the contract for the event.

In November 2013, in Moscow, Aras Agalarov arranged that Putin’s right-hand man, Dmitry Peskov, called him to speak to Donald Trump over the phone.
Peskov invited Trump for the coming Olympics.

Emin Agalarov married the daughter of the president of Azerbaijan, Leyla Aliyeva. Emin was allowed to do a performance at the Moscow Miss Universe show.
Aras Agalarov was “Putin’s Builder”, who was hired to construct the 2012 Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vladivostok. Later in 2013, Putin would award Agalarov the “Order of Honour of the Russian Federation” medal: https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/03/russian-connection-what-happened-moscow-inside-story-trump-obsession-putin-david-corn-michael-isikoff/


In 1994–96, under the infamous “loans-for-shares” program, Russia privatised 150 state-owned companies for just $12 billion.
The principal beneficiaries of this cartelization, were just 25 or so oligarchs with the right insider connections. The needed money to buy the companies was mostly loaned from the Russian state, who in turn had loaned it from the World Bank, IMF, and the Clinton Administration (USAID).
Many banks, private bankers, hedge funds, law firms, accounting firms, leading oil companies (like ExxonMobil and BP), as well as needy borrowers, like the Trump Organization, effectively looted the post-Soviet spoils.

In 2005, according to a Wikileaks cable, Patokh Chodiev (referred to as “Fatokh Shodiyev”) attended the birthday party of reputed Uzbek mob boss Salim Abduvaliyeva and presented him with a $10,000 “gift”.
Wikileaks cables from November 2010 describe a close relationship between “the Kazakh Trio” and the Nazarbayev kleptocracy.
Chodiev and Alexander Mashkevich were also partners in crime with the Russian-Canadian businessman, Boris J. Birshtein. Birshtein was also in business with the reputed head of Solntsevskaya Bratva - Sergei Mikhavlov. According to Fortune in 2014, Solntsevskaya was the world’s highest-grossing organised crime group.

In 1991, while in law school, young Alex Shnaider started working for Birshtein at Seabeco’s Zurich headquarters. When Alex Shnaider had become a Canadian billionaire, he financed the 70-story Trump hotel-tower in Toronto, Canada (which opened in 2012). Shnaider reportedly owns Talon International Development, which oversaw construction of the Toronto Trump hotel-tower.
In 2008, the previously mentioned money laundering Iceland’s FL Group extended a €45.8 million loan to “poor” billionaire Alex Shnaider so he could buy a yacht.
There are rumours about a secret US Federal Reserve report on Iceland banks that were laundering Russian money.

On 23 October 2009, Felix Sater, after turning government informer, got a $25,000 fine, no jail time or probation for his $40 million fraud. The court files remained sealed...

Reportedly Donald Trump has personally sold five separate condos in Trump Tower to David Bogatin. David’s brother Jacob Bogatin was CEO of the ghost company YBM Magnex International. YBM was founded in 1995 indirectly in Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania by "the Brainy Don" Semion Mogilevich, who earned a spot on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list.
In 2003, Mogilevich was indicted in Philadelphia on 45 felony counts for this $150 million stock fraud. There is no chance that Russia will ever extradite Mogilevich. Jacob Bogatin was also indicted in the Philadelphia case.
Another key Mogilevich lieutenant in the US during the 1990s, Vyacheslav Ivankov, also once resided at the Trump Tower: https://www.the-american-interest.com/2016/12/19/the-curious-world-of-donald-trumps-private-russian-connections/
(archived here: http://archive.is/gkiZX)


Mogilevich ran his YBM scam from Budapest, with $2.4-million to start it up. To make YBM look legitimate, he bribed lawyers and accountants and set up a network of shell companies to disguise his ownership.
YBM issued press releases and held investor conferences about its success. The trust in the phantom company was increased by having former Ontario Premier David Peterson on its board.
In 1997, YBM unsuccessfully applied for a listing on the US stock markets.
Shares in YBM on the Toronto Stock Exchange rose from 10 cents per share in July 1994 to $20.15 in March 1998. Mogilevich made a nice profit of $18.4 million.
In 1998, the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice got a tip that YBM had (unsuccessfully) offered its auditors a $500,000 bribe to certify its financial statements.
When the FBI raided YBM’s headquarters there were no magnets (to be sold) at all: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-investor/personal-finance/how-to-spot-fraud-and-be-a-vigilant-investor/article556022/

According to an August 1996 report by the FBI, Boris Birshtein hosted "a summit meeting of Russian organised crime figures" at his office in Tel Aviv in October 1995.
Participants in this meeting included Sergei Mikhailov and Semion Mogilevich.

In 1999, Olexander Volkov was a top adviser to Leonid Kuchma (Ukrainian President from July 1994 to January 2005).
Belgian investigators revealed that Volkov was associated with the Russian Solntsevskaya crime syndicate.
Kuchma's political rivals used the media to criticise his connections to Birshtein.
Belgian prosecutors have confirmed that at least $5 million of the transfers to Volkov from September 1994 to January 1996, came from companies or associates of Boris Birshtein: http://willzuzak.ca/lp/clover01.html

The following story features the notorious 3 November 2015 mail from Felix Sater to Michael Cohen:
Quote
I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected.
(…)
Buddy our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it.

Sater said he had financed the Trump Tower deal with VTB Bank, a Russian bank that was under US sanctions for Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine.

In January 2016, Cohen wrote to Putin’s spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, asking for help restarting the Trump Tower project: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/us/politics/trump-tower-putin-felix-sater.html?mcubz=1
