Putin’s Syria role deserving of Nobel Peace Prize

President Putin should get the Nobel Peace Prize for his moves to resolve the Syrian crisis, according to a group of Russian activists and political scientists who have indicated that they are officially proposing the president’s nomination.

One of the main sponsors of the move, State Duma MP Iosif Kobzon,  told reporters that in his view Putin deserved the prize much  more than the 2009 laureate, US President Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is the man who has initiated and approved the  United States’ aggressive actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, now he  is preparing for an invasion into Syria. He bears this title  nevertheless. Our president, who tries to stop the bloodshed and  who tries to help the conflict situation with political dialogue,  is in my view more worthy of this high title,” the Interfax  news agency quoted Kobzon as saying.
