Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, the Russian state news agency TASS reported Thursday. Russian presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the nomination did not come from the Kremlin.

According to TASS, a group of Russian public figures led by writer Sergey Komkov submitted the nomination, which was sent to Oslo on September 10.

“If this decision is made” — to award Putin the prize — “great, if not, it’s no problem as well,” Peskov said.

The nomination comes as one of Putin’s most prominent critics, opposition leader Alexei Navalny, is recovering from poisoning with a Soviet-era nerve agent. […]

President Trump has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. His nomination was submitted by a Norwegian lawmaker, who nominated him in 2018 as well.
