Russian Nobel laureate auctions medal to help Ukrainian refugees

New York

The Nobel Peace Prize, auctioned by Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov to raise money for Ukrainian refugee children, sold for $103.5 million Monday night, breaking the old record for a Nobel Prize.

A spokesman for Heritage Auctions, which handled the sale, could not confirm the buyer’s identity, but said the winning bid was made by proxy. The $103.5 million sale translates to $100 million Swiss Francs, suggesting that the buyer is from abroad.

“I was hoping there would be a huge amount of solidarity, but I didn’t expect it to be such a huge amount,” Mr Muratov said in an interview after bidding on the nearly three-week auction that ended on World Refugee Day.
