8:22 pm
presidency when they gave him the nobel peace prize he hasn't had a chance to even set up as desk at that point if you look at some of the people that chose one of the ones that you mentioned today on song suchi the reason why she's deserve the prize is she says she worked for years and years in a nonviolent way to change a country i don't think her actions to today are that of a nobel peace prize winner but i certainly don't think that you should take the prize away. moscow's marking eight hundred seventy years since the city was founded celebrations have been held with special workshops exhibitions and sporting events city day ended with a fireworks display in the heart of the russian capital i can attest to that. a riot of noise and color lit up the night sky over the city more than thirteen
