One year ago Kara-Murza was sentenced to 25 years in a maximum security colony because of fake charge of treason. He has been in custody for 2 years already. The real reason for his imprisonment was his anti-war statements and public speaking that criticized Russian authorities. Now relatives and lawyers fear for Vladimir's health.

The Pulitzer Prize is the most prestigious journalism award in the World. Established in the USA in 1917. The award is 15 000 $.
