The Russian organisation Memorial, the Ukrainian organisation Center for Civil Liberties, and the imprisoned Belarusian rights campaigner Ales Bialiatski will share this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, the award’s judges announced on Friday.
The judges intended to recognise “three great advocates of human rights, democracy, and peaceful coexistence in the neighbouring countries Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine,” according to Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
“This year’s laureates have reinvigorated and honoured Alfred Nobel’s ideal of peace and fraternity between nations, a vision most needed in the world today,” she told reporters in Oslo. “Through their constant efforts in favour of human values and anti-militarism and principles of law.
The honour continues a tradition of showcasing organisations and activists working to end the conflict, ease suffering, and defend human rights.

For “their efforts to defend freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and sustainable peace,” they received recognition last year.
