Ukraine: Russia’s Nobel Medal sold for $103 million – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, June 20 – The Nobel Peace Prize medal for Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov has been sold at auction in New York for $103 million. The proceeds will go to UNICEF to help children displaced by the war in Ukraine. Muratov, who won the gold medal in October 2021, helped found the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta. He was editor-in-chief of the magazine when it closed in March due to the Kremlin’s crackdown on journalists. (Dealing).
