World War 3 threats from Russia have become frequent these days. In such a scenario, Russian President Vladimir Putin getting a peace prize from Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has surprised the world.

Venezuela has announced the creation of the Hugo Chavez prize named after the nation’s late socialist leader Hugo Chavez. The president said that he has decided to deliver the first award to Putin. The announcement has come on the same day following the giving away of the Nobel Peace Prize to Juan Manuel Santos.

Santos is the president of Colombia. He received the prize for his contribution in the peace agreement with Marxist FARC rebels.

“I’ve decided to create the Hugo Chavez prize for peace and the sovereignty,” Maduro said. “I think President Vladimir Putin deserves this Hugo Chavez award,” he said as quoted by the ABC. He described Putin as a “fighter for peace”. He also added that the winners of the price would get a mini replica of the statue of the leader.

The announcement of the award came as a surprise to the world as Russia and its president has been in the news for quite a long time. World War 3 updates keep on coming from the nation. Its deteriorating bond with NATO members and its threat to Europe have shown how aggressively Russia has been dealing with the rest of the world.

According to the reports, Russia finds that other nations have insufficient measures to deal with both national and international conflicts. The retired US military chief warned nations across the globe to start adopting advanced military measures, keeping in mind the continuous threats coming from Russia.

Above all, there are claims that Putin has secretly deployed destructive nuclear missiles into European heartland, thereby leading to chances of commencement of World War 3 conflicts very soon.
