Nobel Peace Prize ‘for Russian journalists who lost their lives’

Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov has informed the BBC he’s dedicating the Nobel Peace Prize, which he was awarded collectively with Filipino journalist Maria Ressa, to Russian journalists who have been killed within the line of responsibility.

In an interview with the BBC’s Richard Galpin, Dmitry Muratov described the scenario with impartial media in Russia as “very, very difficult and complicated” and criticised laws which he stated was “aimed at restricting the freedom of the press”.

In the previous few months, dozens of Russian journalists and media shops have been harassed and placed on authorities blacklists as “foreign agents” or “undesirable organisations”.
