Novaya Gazeta is known as one of the “only truly critical newspapers with national influence in Russia today” by the Committee to Protect Journalists. Muratov often reported on sensitive topics including human rights violations, high-level government corruption, and abuse of power. His political beliefs, such as supporting freedom of press, has led to conflict with fellow journalists and the government.

In response, Kiriyenko sued Novaya Gazeta and Rozhnov for libel, and in passing judgement in favour of Kiriyenko the court ordered Novaya Gazeta to retract all publications relating to the accusations and went on to say that the newspaper “is obliged to publish only officially proven information linking Mr Kiriyenko with embezzlement.”

After Novaya Gazeta published an investigation by journalist Denis Korotkov about Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin,in October 2018, Denis Korotkov and the editor-in-chief at Novaya Gazeta were the target of threatening deliveries of a severed ram’s head and funeral flowers to the paper’s offices. The style of the threat resembled others by Kremlin-linked Yevgeny Prigozhin.

Novaya Gazeta published reports about anti-gay purges in Chechnya in 2017, where three men were allegedly killed, and dozens detained and intimidated. After publication, the Chechen Government denied the existence of persecutions in the Republic.In 2003, Yury Shchekochikhin died after investigating a corruption scandal where high-ranking Russian officials were involved.Anna Politkovskaya was assassinated in her apartment block in 2006 after spending her career covering Chechnya and the Northern Caucasus.

In 2009, both Anastasia Baburova and Natalia Estemirova were shot and killed.Muratov stepped down from the paper in 2017 crediting the exhausting nature of running the paper.Muratov spent over 20 years as editor-in-chief. His absence was brief as he resumed his position in 2019 after the paper’s staff voted for his return.

Muratov was awarded the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, alongside Maria Ressa of the Philippines, “for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.”The Nobel Committee specifically commended Novaja Gazeta’s “critical articles on subjects ranging from corruption, police violence, unlawful arrests, electoral fraud and ”troll factories” to the use of Russian military forces both within and outside Russia.”
