Here is what written about this in the FB editor of the Truth.Ru Inna Novikova:
— Do members of the Nobel Committee couldn’t find any Svetlana Aleksievich some North Korea? And in Russia the mass of the “right” writers of varying degrees of talent. I have nothing against Dylan as a musician, know nothing about him as a writer.
But I had to give Dylan a prize, not for literature, and for peace. The song Blowin’ in the Wind and The Times They are A-Changin’ became the unofficial anthems of the anti-war movement and the civil rights movement in the United States. No, not so. Let’s Dylan going for the great American writer -2016 year. And for peace have to give the prize to the President of Colombia, and John Kerry, because he in 1971 was very sorry that he participated in the war in Vietnam and killed thousands of civilians. Repented and participated in the antiwar movement. With that and came to politics.
