It’s our job to keep an eye on all things Disney.
Back in March, Disney announced that it would be pausing all business in Russia due to the country’s invasion of Ukraine. According to Reuters, Disney Channel will stop broadcasting in Russia on December 14th.
The Kommersant newspaper reported on Friday that Disney Channel will be replaced by a new children’s channel called “Solntse“, which is the English equivalent of the word “sun.”
