After US President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, the Russian state news agency TASS reported Thursday.

According to TASS, a group of Russian public figures led by writer Sergey Komkov submitted the nomination, which was sent to Oslo on September 10. 

It is thought that Kremlin is behind on Putin's nomination. However, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Putin’s administration was not behind the nomination.

In a statement, he claimed that the Russian administration had nothing to do with the people who nominated President Putin for the Nobel Peace Prize, including Sergey Komkov.

Putin has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize at a time when he is blamed for the assassination attempt on Alexei Navalny, the country's opposition leader.

Putin is being criticized in various countries around the world, including Europe, over the incident. However, the Kremlin has categorically denied poisoning Navalny.
