Belarus opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya and Russia’s jailed opposition leader Alexey Navalny top the shortlist for potential winners of this year’s Nobel Peace prize, the Peace Research Institute Oslo said in annual predictions.
“Both Tsikhanouskaya and Navalny are vocal critics of the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” according to a statement in Oslo on Friday. “A shared Nobel Peace Prize between them would be seen as a clear protest of the Russian aggression and the assistance by Belarus, and as support of democratic and non-violent alternatives” to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, it said.
