MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Russian president Vladimir Putin was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Russian president was chosen by the advocacy group Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation of Peoples of the World.

The group credits Putin for his peaceful resolution to the Syrian-U.S. disagreements over chemical weapons. But their peaceful honor didn’t come so peacefully. They took it as an opportunity to throw some shade at President Obama.

Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, but the group says Putin deserves it much more than him because of the way the advocacy group feels Obama handled things in Iraq, Afghanistan and now in Syria.
