Disney stops releasing films in Russia

The Walt Disney Company announced it will halt the release of its films in Russia over the current situation in Ukraine.

"Given the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and the tragic humanitarian crisis, we are pausing the release of theatrical films in Russia, including the upcoming Turning Red from Pixar," a spokesperson for Disney said in a statement.

The company said it will make future business decisions based on how the situation evolves. "In the meantime, given the scale of the emerging refugee crisis, we are working with our NGO partners to provide urgent aid and other humanitarian assistance to refugees," it added.
