In 1843, Joseph Smith called two missionaries, George J. Adams and Orson Hyde, to serve in Russia, but their mission was called after the death of Joseph Smith. In 1887, Joseph M. Tanner reportedly baptized some Russians in Jaffa, Palestine, who then emigrated to Utah. In 1895 August Höglund, a Swedish native, became the first missionary to proselyte in Russia, where he converted the family of Johan M. Lindelof.
As of November 15, 2015, Russia has three stakes.
