Montana State University Leadership Institute to Host Nobel Peace Prize winner Dmitry Muratov – “The Russia-Ukraine War”- 2/22 – Bozeman

February 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

“I encourage everyone to witness Nobel Laureate Muratov providing his unique and courageous perspective on freedom of speech and the Russia-Ukraine war,” said Carmen McSpadden, director of the MSU Leadership Institute. “Incredibly timely to current events, his message will give MSU students and our community a one-of-a-kind experience.”

 

Dmitry Muratov, a free speech activist and 2021 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, will speak at Montana State University about freedom of speech, the Russia-Ukraine war and his experiences risking his life for journalistic integrity in the face of government opposition.

The event, hosted by the MSU Leadership Institute, is scheduled for Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Strand Union Building ballrooms. Ticket information will be released in January.

Muratov co-founded and served as editor-in-chief of the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, which has reported on government corruption and human rights since 1993. Since 2000, several journalists working for the paper have been killed, believed to have been targeted for their investigative work. Muratov himself sustained chemical burns when he was attacked on a Russian train in April 2022, shortly after Novaya Gazeta announced under government pressure that it would suspend publication until the end of the war in Ukraine. In September, Novaya Gazeta’s print and online media licenses were rescinded by Russian courts.
