Why didn't Putin receive Nobel Peace Prize?


A strange situation we have with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2013. This year, it was awarded to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

As the head of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjørn Jagland, said the organization received the Peace Prize "for considerable contribution to the widespread elimination of chemical weapons."

In Russia, reactions to the news were, shall we say, quite emotional, as President Putin was nominated for the prize.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee explained why the prize was awarded to the OPCW. The organization "performing inspections and eliminating stockpiles of chemical weapons, as well as acting in other ways, makes every effort to implement the provisions of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons."


  1. Glorious leader Putin is of deserving award. Not smelly hippy OPCW

    1. Think of it this way, Putin deserves an award just not the Nobel. He doesn't need an award given to the worst mass murderers of the century.

  2. I think both the Russian foreign ministry, Lavrov and Putin need to split this award, cause they brokered the deal with the Americans.

    I think this is a great victory for diplomacy, honestly.

  3. You guys a re getting boring now.

    Catch me if you can
