Natallia Pinchuk thanked the Nobel Committee for the recognition.
Belarusian human rights activist Ales Bialiatski received the Nobel Peace Prize on October 7. His wife Natallia Pinchuk told the People blog about her first impressions of her husband's award.
“The news came as a surprise, it was completely unexpected. Ales’ name was not mentioned anywhere, there were not even hopes or rumors. Unexpected but good news. Of course, now I feel great pride, a very wide range of feelings,” said Natallia. “This is a reward for him, his associates, for hard and dangerous work. And I am very grateful to those who have contributed to this award.”
I understand that now you need to congratulate him, send him telegrams. Of course, this will be even more unexpected news for him, but, of course, very joyful. I plan to send him a telegram and tell him everything.
