“In view of the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and the tragic humanitarian crisis, we are suspending the theatrical release of films, including Pixar’s upcoming Red Alert in Russia,” the group wrote in a statement.

“We will make future business decisions based on how the situation develops,” he added.

Meanwhile, Disney says it is working with NGOs to provide emergency assistance and other forms of humanitarian assistance to refugees.

Many multinational corporations withdrew from Russia after the occupation of Ukraine.

Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft on Monday took action to curb the spread of information from news organizations affiliated with the Russian government.

Most notably, 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.
