Stockholm, Sweden – President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, is next in line to get the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee intends to award President Putin the Peace Prize in 2015.
The Nobel Prize Committee has recognized Vladimir Putin’s efforts in bringing peace to the entire Baltic region, and especially, Ukraine in the past year, and saw the Russian President fit for the Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee also listed “President Putin’s peacekeeping role in the Georgia conflict in 2008 as one of the crucial contributions of the Russian Federation to regional peace and prosperity.”
Thorbjoern Jagland, the official spokesman of the Nobel Committee, stated that “it was about time someone saw Mr. Putin for what he really is, instead of what the western media are trying so hard to make him out to be. The man is a hero and he should be celebrated as such. What’s more, if we could give the same honor to Obama, why shouldn’t the president of an equally significant country be honored with the same?”
As a reminder, the president of the United States, Barrack Obama, was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Since then, much like his counterpart Vladimir Putin, he has brought nothing but peace to the world. Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and Syria are the latest additions to the long list of countries that are now blessed with peace and prosperity, thanks to the American president.
Mr. Jagland also added that “the Nobel Committee takes great pride in its criteria of electing only the meritorious Prize candidates. That means that our sole purpose is to make sure that the Prize, which is not a small thing, I might add, always goes to those who truly deserve it, and Mr. Putin is certainly such a person.”
