Nobel: Muratov and Ressa in Oslo, minute silence for killed colleagues

“Let us stand up and honor my colleagues and those of Maria Ressa, who gave their lives for this profession, with a minute of silence, and let us give our support to those who suffer persecution”. This was stated by the Russian investigative journalist, Dimitry Muratov, during the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at the Oslo city hall, which he won together with Filipino reporter Maria Ressa.
“I would like journalists to die as they get older,” added the editor-in-chief of the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta.
My award is “for all journalists,” said the other winner Ressa, co-founder of the Rappler site. The two reporters, who have had to face pressure from the authorities of their respective countries, were awarded the prestigious award for “their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression”.
