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 used to be awarded collectively with Filipino journalist Maria Ressa, to Russian newshounds who’ve been killed within the line of responsibility.

In an interview with the BBC’s Richard Galpin, Dmitry Muratov described the location with unbiased media in Russia as “very, very tricky and complex” and criticised law which he mentioned used to be “geared toward limiting the liberty of the clicking”.

In the previous few months, dozens of Russian newshounds and media retailers were careworn and placed on executive blacklists as “overseas brokers” or “unwanted organisations”.
