Russian Nobel Peace Prize?

OSLO, Norway ?€” A founding member of the Memorial human rights group is among a record 241 nominations submitted for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.

Svetlana Gannushkina, who has assisted people from Nagorno-Karabakh to Chechnya, is nominated together with secret-spilling organization WikiLeaks and Cuban dissidents, according to public announcements by those who nominated them.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee does not reveal the names of nominees and doesn't discuss candidates until the winner is announced in October.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
