Russian editor's Nobel medal auctioned for Ukraine refugees fetches $103.5m – video

The Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov has auctioned off his Nobel peace prize medal to raise money for Unicef to help Ukrainian children displaced by war.

The gold medal was sold for a record $103.5m (£84.5m). Muratov was awarded the prize in October 2021 for helping found the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta. He was the editor-in-chief when it was closed amid a Kremlin clampdown on journalists and public dissent as the country invaded Ukraine.
