Will a U.S. divorce affect my property in Russia?

I am a dual citizen of Russia and the U.S. and I own significant real estate in both places. My wife’s name is on my U.S. properties although not on my Russian properties. I did acquire the bulk of the Russia real estate after my wife and I married. If I get a divorce in the states will a judge have any authority to give my wife any interest in the properties in Russia, or force me to sell any of them to pay her a lump sum of money? I am looking to work with an international lawyer who is familiar with family law in both the United States and Russia.
