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

Between 2007 and 2009 during the daytime, it broadcast the children's channel called Bibigon.

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

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