Nobel sold for Ukrainian kids shatters record at $103.5M
Bidding in the auction ended in New York on Monday, which is World Refugee Day. The sale shatters the old $4.76 million record for a Nobel.
The identity of the buyer isn’t immediately known. Muratov was awarded the medal in October 2021.
He helped found the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta and was the publication’s editor-in-chief when it shut down in March amid a Kremlin clampdown after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
