Russian Journalist to Auction Nobel Medal to Benefit Ukraine

From a New York Times story by Jennifer Schuessler headlined “Russian Journalist to Auction Nobel Medal to Benefit Ukraine”:

After winning the Nobel Peace Prize last October, the Russian journalist Dmitri A. Muratov said he thought the honor should have gone to a different Russian: the jailed opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny.

Mr. Muratov, the editor of the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta (who shared the prize with the journalist Maria Ressa of Rappler, a news outlet in the Philippines), later announced that he would donate his roughly $500,000 in prize money to support various charitable causes.
