On December 10, on International Human Rights Day, the head of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Berit Reiss-Andersen, presented a gold medal with a portrait of the founder of the award, Alfred Nobel, and a diploma to the head of the Center for Civil Liberties, Alexandra Matviychuk.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Matviychuk is widely known for her human rights activities, including those related to the Crimea. Human rights violations by the occupiers are reflected in a number of reports sent by the Center for Civil Liberties to various bodies of the UN, the Council of Europe, the European Union, the OSCE and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

In 2022, Matviychuk was included in the top 25 most influential women in the world compiled by the Financial Times, and is also included in the list of the 100 most inspiring and influential women of the year according to the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC.
