The Geneva Graduate Institute, the Kofi Annan Foundation and the Freedom Cartoonists Foundation will host a screening of the documentary “The Price of Truth” about the life of Dmitry Muratov. Russian journalist, television presenter and editor-in-chief of the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, Muratov was awarded the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize jointly with Maria Ressa for “their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace”. On 1 September 2023, Muratov was declared by the Russian authorities to be a “foreign agent”.
