Russian Journalist Sells His Nobel Prize For £84,500,000 To Give To Children In War Torn Ukraine



The journalist will be giving the money to Ukrainian child refugees to give them ‘a chance for a future’.

A Russian journalist has sold his Nobel Peace Prize for a staggering £84.5 million, over $100m.

Dmitry Muratov, an award-winning Russian journalist sold his Nobel Peace Prize to help fend for Ukrainian children ravaged by war brought on them by Russia.

Muratov who was awarded the gold medal in October 2021, having helped found the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, smashed the record for the highest sum paid for the medal last night in New York City.

He raised $103.5 million (£84.5 million), a sum 27 times higher than the old record set eight years ago.

The journalist will be giving the money to Ukrainian child refugees to give them ‘a chance for a future’.

Proceeds from the auction will go directly to UNICEF in its efforts to help children displaced by the war.

Ahead of the auction, Mr Muratov said he was particularly concerned about children who have been orphaned because of the conflict in Ukraine. ‘We want to return their future,’ he said.

Previously, the most ever paid for a Nobel Prize medal was in 2014, when James Watson, whose co-discovery of the structure of DNA earned him a Nobel Prize in 1962, sold his medal for $4.76 million (£3.9 million).

Melted down, the 175 grams of 23-karat gold contained in the medal would be worth about $10,000 (£8,156) alone.

Mr Muratov has been highly critical of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea and the war launched in February. It has caused nearly five million Ukrainians to flee their country, creating the largest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II. UNICEF estimated back in March that 2 million children had been among those forced to flee.
