MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. US President Barack Obama should have been awarded with a "Nobel War Prize" if it existed, a senior Russian lawmaker said on Thursday.
"We see that Obama's anti-war rhetorics is a smokescreen for the US continuing militarist policy in the Middle East," said Alexey Pushkov, the head of the Russian State Duma committee for international affairs.
Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons," according to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
