Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov was a co-winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize and recently auctioned off his medal for a whopping $103.5 million.
Muratov, who is the editor of one of Russia’s last independent newspapers donated all of the funds raised from the auction to aid children displaced by the war in Ukraine. What a legend.
The auction was held on Monday which coincided with World Refugee Day, and the proceeds have been dedicated to UNICEF’s humanitarian response to Ukrainian children.
More to come.
