“There is more news about Alexei Navalny: today, a number of professors of recognised universities who deal with Russia nominated him for Nobel Peace Prize. It is not a new idea but it became more relevant and should receive wide response,” Erofeev wrote.
He noted that the scientists started the initiative to nominate the oppositionists. According to Erofeev, the professors might be supported by the government officials or representatives of the international organizations. The scientists also said that some people disliked the activity of Navalny earlier but they changed their minds.
