Fairmont Russia - Gone?

I seem to recall Fairmont had a big push into Russia during the 2014 Olympics with plans to expand to Moscow. Now it seems there are none in all of Russia. Seems strange considering Accor has an active presence there.

(Swissotel is presently in Sochi and Moscow)

I don't know if I'd call it a big push.

I don't think there ever was a Fairmont in Russia. I recall there were plans to convert the old Pekin Hotel in Moscow to a Fairmont, but I don't believe that was ever completed.
