Nobel Prize winners are leaders of public opinion and are listened to when making important decisions. Their assessments and words mean sometimes more than the words and assessments of famous actors with multimillion-dollar paychecks. The silence of these people is taken as unspoken approval.
Only one person from the list of the "most prominent" is capable of setting a bright precedent for the international community by taking the side of the aggressor. And at the same time, it provides a huge space for manipulation, which Russia will definitely use to justify any of its actions and crimes.
Looking ahead, we note that among the "world's greatest peacekeepers" there are supporters of Russia. Their words sound especially loud against the background of the silence and neutrality of many other participants.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons does not express its position. It is worth noting that Russia's aggression against Ukraine critically deserves the OPCW's attention because of:
We have separately identified the International Historical, Educational, Human Rights and Charitable Society "Memorial" from Russia, which, according to their social media, operates in the context of protecting the rights of Russians: it covers the war through the prism of Russian citizens who would like to avoid participation in the war. This society won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2022.
He positioned himself as an intermediary between Trump and Putin, often meeting with Putin personally. In 2016, he recommended that Trump recognize Crimea as Russian and lift sanctions against Russia in exchange for the withdrawal of troops from eastern Ukraine. In May 2022, at the World Economic Forum, he advocated a diplomatic settlement of the situation and a return to the status quo before the war, in effect, the transfer of eastern Ukraine and Crimea to Russia.

In August 2022, the organization published a report accusing Ukrainian troops of endangering civilians by basing themselves in cities, schools, and hospitals. The Russian ambassador to the UN cited the report as justification for Russia's occupation and militarization of the ZNPP. The press release sparked controversy, after which the head of Amnesty International's Ukrainian branch, Oksana Pokalchuk, resigned, as did the co-founder of Amnesty Sweden and eighty members of Amnesty Norway. Following the criticism, Amnesty International agreed to an external assessment of its controversial statement.
👉 Earlier, Molfar's OSINT community had already conducted a detailed investigation called "What's Wrong with Amnesty International?".
In March 2022, he said that the United States and the EU were intervening in the war indirectly by sending weapons and supporting Ukraine and the pro-Nazi government, which had been attacking and torturing the people of Donbas for eight years. The West is hiding the truth about the war, propagandizing and demonizing Russia. In February 2023, he said that "the Ukrainian people are just victims" and that "sending tanks to support a Nazi friend like Zelenskyy is dangerous. You are feeding a monster".
Of particular note: Nobel Peace Prize laureate Adolfo Esquivel calls Zelenskyy a "Nazi friend," the Ukrainian government "pro-Nazi," and Western politicians bad because of propaganda and demonization of the Russian Federation. Classic Russian narratives. We are hopeful and doing our best to show Mr. Adolfo how wrong he is in the near future.
The next step is to compare the results of prominent peacemakers with those of prominent writers. And we can immediately see in the graph that none of the writers and poets sided with the aggressor, although there were three of them among the "peacemakers."
Kenzaburō Ōe (Japan), Gao Xingjian (China), Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio (France), Mo Yan (China), Alice Munro (Canada), Bob Dylan (USA), Peter Handke (Austria), Louise Glück (USA). They cannot be called friends of Ukraine because they are silent witnesses of Russia's aggression against Ukraine.
This person is Abdulrazak Gurnah, a British citizen. It is ironic that he was awarded the Nobel Prize "for his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fates of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents".
In the context of the war in Ukraine, he condemned the prejudice of Europeans against world wars: "It is not surprising that European countries show more sympathy for Ukrainians than Africans: it is their own family, they are their neighbors. Not surprisingly, it is sad that such human concern does not extend to Afghans or Iraqis. This has served to expose the biased attitude. It's the only positive thing we can get out of all this".
Olga Tokarchuk – she is the only Nobel Prize winner in literature to have joined the financial aid to Ukraine.
Among the Nobel Peace Prize winners, there are also people who sympathize with Ukraine and are ready to contribute financially.
To emphasize: The Molfar OSINT community believes that there are no "good Russians". The above facts about Dmitry Muratov's actions are based on documentary evidence.
No matter who you are – a poet or a scientist, a producer or an actor – you can help. The story that "there are no small donations" is well-known to millions of Ukrainians. Because the main thing is regularity and the desire to bring the result to life.
Two dozen Hollywood celebrities raised more than $350 million in one year to help Ukraine. These people simply used their status and audience for a good cause.
