Written by on March 23, 2022

The joint Russian winner of last year’s Nobel Peace Prize, Dmitry Muratov, said Tuesday he will donate his medal to help Ukrainian refugees.
Muratov, editor of Russia’s leading opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was awarded the 2021 prize alongside Maria Ressa of the Philippines for their efforts “to safeguard freedom of expression”.

Writing on Telegram, he said that he and the newspaper had decided to donate the gold medal to a fund to help Ukrainian refugees.

Muratov said he wanted to share the medal “with peaceful refugees and wounded and sick children who needed emergency treatment”.

In his message, the journalist also called for a ceasefire and prisoner exchange, the return of the bodies of those killed and the provision of humanitarian corridors and aid.
