“Due to the unplanned invasion of Ukraine and the tragic humanitarian crisis, we are suspending the theatrical release of films in Russia, including Pixar’s upcoming Red Alert,” the group said in a statement.
“We make future business decisions based on how the situation develops,” he added.
During this time, Disney said it was working with NGOs to provide emergency assistance and other forms of humanitarian assistance to refugees.
Since the invasion of Ukraine, many multinational corporations have distanced themselves from Russia.
Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft on Monday took steps to limit the spread of information from news outlets affiliated with the Russian government.
More seriously, British oil companies BP and Shell have announced they will split their stakes in joint ventures with Russian groups in Russia.
However, for some foreign companies, it is difficult to break away from Russia overnight by closing factories or supermarkets.
