A group of Vladimir Putin's supporters have announced their nomination of the Russian president for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize.

Beslan Kobakhia, vice president of the Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation Between the World's Nations, says it's down to Putin's leadership.

"Vladimir Putin did everything possible for the peace settlement in Syria. Vladimir Putin led by his personal example in his devotion to peace - not just with his words, but with his actions," Kobakhia said. "At the cornerstone of all his life there are no short-term political goals or vested corporate interests of his own country, but only interest in maintaining peace in the whole world."
