The nomination of the female resident of Gorlovka Anna Tuv, who lost her husband, daughter and one of her hands as a result of Ukrainian shelling, for the Nobel Peace Prize deserves full support. This was stated on January 20th by the deputy of the National Council and Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Policy, International Relations, Information Policy, and Information Technologies Vladislav Berdichevsky.
“I know Anna personally, both she and her family suffered very badly. Despite this she found the strength to speak about it to the world. She is a very strong and characteristic woman. That’s why I consider that Anna Tuv deserves to receive the Nobel Peace Prize,” said the interlocutor of the agency told. “I completely support this initiative”.
Berdichevsky added that the nomination of Tuv, which took place in Italy, shows the aspiration of a part of the western public to learn and spread the truth about the conflict in Donbass.
“The event received media resonance and is supported in Russia and also around the world – this is very good. After all, the more people will learn about what is going on here, the quicker the truth will reach western politicians”concluded the deputy
The day prior a press conference took place in the building of Italian parliament, during which Anna Tuv was presented as a candidate for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. The relevant initiative was taken by the Italian charitable organisation “Help to Save Children”, its chairman Ennio Bordato, and the deputy Vito Comencini.
Anna Tuv lost a hand as a result of Ukrainian shelling on Gorlovka on May 26th 2015. Anna’s husband and 11-year-old daughter died on the spot, her two-year-old child received multiple shrapnel wounds, the youngest child – who at that time was only two weeks old – was contused. Now the female Gorlovka resident seeks to convey objective information about the conflict in Donbass to the international community for the fastest termination of war. In particular, in November 2017 she made a speech at the session of the Human Rights Council in the UN.
