2:03 pm
together like it did after world war 2. to solve this problem, what did they do? they created the united nations. they created the universal declaration of human rights, the work. this is that kind of moment. and i don't know how we in the philippines will have integrity of elections. if guardrails are put in place around the social media platforms, the journalists will continue doing our jobs. but they're always repercussions if you do a story, someone doesn't like already. challenge joins us now live from all. those are already that's really puts the struggle of journalists in the line like, doesn't it? yeah, i think that was the intention of the nobel peace committee. when they came to this decision, i was speaking to her very gross allison after the announcement was made. and i asked her why these particular candidates have been chosen amongst
2:04 pm
a field of 329. and she said, well, we come out from all angles, but we were worried about the state of journalism, a freedom of information, freedom of expression in the world in a moment. and these 2 journals essentially are exemplars of courage in working in difficult circumstances in difficult countries. that is the view of things that she was trying to get across in her announcement. she said that the award of the nobel peace prize to maria resar and dmitri motto, is intended to underscore the importance of protecting and defending these fundamental rights. now, these 2 candidates, dmitri murat of he is the editor in chief of nev, i guess yetter, which for many, many years has been a bastion of independent journalism in russia. its staff of commander, significant pressure and violence over the years in most publications,
2:05 pm
words filled massively traumatize if they lost only one germ less to him to murder of i guess yetta has lost 6 over the years, including the famous journalist and a product of sky or maria resar as well working in the philippines her under the the rule of do tirty, basically trying to shine a light into the campaign against drugs, which is often vida had let many, many this she to come under significant pressure. so nobel prize trying to look a journalist and what they suffer in their day to day work, trying to bring the truth or to people around the world. all right, thanks so much rory challenge there. let's take this now to pavel fell. now, in moscow, he's a journalist and military analyst for no via gazette, newspaper. good to have you with us. so how much of a surprise was this for journalists that to why again the at that full mr. moran himself. i guess you probably spoken to him since the announcement. well,
2:06 pm
we were in contact. yes, of course it's a very, it's a surprise or most, a nice surprise, but it's still very much a surprise. and her, the mom has announced that her to the service that has no guys yet, that we have 138 and nobel prize winners. that's number staff in our newspaper. and we're all winners and the prize belongs to all of them. and of course, all the money is going to be to the last penny transferred for charity. because under a current russian law, getting money from abroad means that you can and may be sure will be declared to foreign agent. so that's a precaution that was planned in manser session event may happen a letter of the newspaper, yet he any foreign a prize for its work. and that sanguine, nice,
2:07 pm
i was going to ask you precisely about that point because any foreign funding has implications for russian organizations. the how much concern do journalists have? well, i'm sure they're very happy and delighted as, as journalists around the world. ah, but how much concern, perhaps, are they the of, of any unintended negative consequences of being recognized and celebrated in this way? well, you said, but said the additional kind of cross as on nowhere guys, yet village is more west. the last major printer and of course more right now, it's more in the internet than that. but anyway, a printer run the newspaper in russia that is low very much off in opposition to the kremlin. and that can have consequences though, right now, parentally, the kremlin is happy with what happened and they can graduate demitria, murat of, or because i mean them, they're happy because it's not an exceed nevada,
2:08 pm
because that was also a possibility. that alexia navarre made that position leader who was right now, incarcerated. that yet, that no bo pray a prize. and that would be much worse. or, i mean, they can live with me to boot more at the present. no, bo prize winner with no widening, that would be much worse. so most likely that they're happy to. when you mentioned that, you know that this can put the crosshairs on you. just how explain to us just how challenging it is to day to be a journalist. working front of, i guess the, at the, i mean, do you personally have to fear for your own well being of safety? what were your, of course, it's under pressure that the authorities don't to like you year in math. the credit that they don officials try not to talk to you. it's a, it's sort of course, the light of a problem. and a lot of journalists ad lost their jobs. and recently the
2:09 pm
opposition minded key, the channel, the doors to was declared their foreign agent. because they had the contract with european commission on covering russian european corporation, and they were paid for that. and that was a pretext to declare them foreign agents. and that's jerry. so we're out of weight with it nowhere guys. yet there has been kind of allowed to exist. that's good for us. right up to now the credit, i'm saying, yes, we had a be their opponents of ours, but we allow our, our position to have a voice and nobody does yet please given that role. but of course no worse, one of up to now and more than one how long that's going to continue. no one knows everyone understands that we are in their cross fairs and it's a situation between russia and their with yes, worse, i'd rather nowhere guys yet. but could also give be the consequence of that. all
