Russia-2 (Russian: Россия-2) was a Russian television channel operated by VGTRK. It primarily broadcasts sports.

Between 2007 to 2009 on daytime it broadcast children's channel called Bibigon.

Before January 1, 2010 it was known as Sport, but since then it was re-branded due to broadened format.

On 1 November 2015 the channel was closed, and its broadcasting frequency was taken by a new sports television channel Match TV.
