Putin Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Despite Russia’s role as the main supplier of weapons to Bashar al-Assad’s regime, an advocacy group has put the president’s name forward because the former KGB agent “actively promotes settlement of all conflicts arising on the planet.” The International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation of Peoples of the World made no mention of Putin’s ruthless and violent campaign against the separatists in Chechnya or the war he waged on Georgia, but instead points to his efforts to prevent a US air strike on the Syrian regime following a chemical gas attack in August. The activist group is on the list of those approved to make Nobel Peace Prize nominations and according to the vice president of the organisation.
It's worth noting that Stalin and Hitler also got nominations.
