Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize among 278 others. Reuters noted that the Nobel Committee will probably take into consideration Russia's actions in Crimea.
"Part of the purpose of the committee's first meeting is to take into account recent events, and committee members try to anticipate what could be the potential developments in political hotspots," the director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute said. Pope Francis, Edward Snowden and Malala Yousufzai have been nominated as well.
