Russian MP Roman Khudyakov recently gave an interview in which he advocated for stripping Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize and giving it to Vladimir Putin instead. Khudyakov claims Putin, “stopped the war in Iran, in Syria and he is still saving a lot of people from major bloodshed.” He added, “He is a vivid example of a politician who preserves peace and love in the world.”
It’s difficult to discern who would be the more unfit recipient of such an award, though the Nobel Peace Prize has notoriously gone to questionable leaders in the past. “More and more international experts are calling Obama’s presidency dark times,” Khudyakov said. “The reason for that is the brutal policy that he is conducting all over the world, like Napoleon or Hitler had done before.” You know you’re a tyrant when Russia compares you to Hitler…
Khudyakov isn’t the first Russian to propose stripping Obama of his Nobel Peace Prize, either. Lyudmila Bokova formerly claimed that the President’s policies led to unrest in the Ukraine.
I would pay a whole month’s salary to see Obama’s face should his Nobel Peace Prize be stripped and given to Vladimir Putin. Wouldn’t you?
