Russia accuses Ukraine of being behind car bombing of Darya Dugina

Daria Dugina, who is the daughter of a Russian political theorist, was killed in a car explosion just outside Moscow, Russian authorities confirmed on Sunday. Daria Dugina’s father, Alexander Dugin, is referred to as “Putin’s brain.”

The Moscow branch of the Russian Investigative Committee confirmed that early information suggested that Daria Dugina, 29, was killed after an explosive, which was planted in her SUV detonated.

Dugina appeared on Russian television the Thursday before her death and said, “People in the West are living in a dream, in a dream given to them by global hegemony.” She called America “a zombie society” in which people opposed Russia but could not find it on a map.

Despite her father’s senior position within the government and his close ties to President Vladimir Putin, no one has claimed responsibility at this stage.

Denis Pushilin, who is President of The Donetsk People’s Republic, blamed the explosion on “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime, trying to kill Alexander Dugin.”

Mykhailo Podolyak, who acts as an advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, strongly denied any claims that Ukraine were involved stating, “We are not a criminal state, unlike Russia, and definitely not a terrorist state.”

Putin’s former speech writer Abbas Gallyamov, who is now a political analyst, referred to the attack as “an act of intimidation.”

Gallyamov went on to say “this is a symbolic act, demonstrating that hostilities have been confidently transferred to the territory of Russia, which means that this is no longer an abstract war that you watch on TV.” He added, “This is already happening in Russia. Not only Crimea is being bombed, but terrorist attacks are already being carried out in the Moscow region.”

Dugin’s exact links to Putin are not known, however he was known to popularize the terms “Novorossiya,” or “New Russia.” Dugin was also a strong believer of traditional Russian values. Dugin was sanctioned by the United States in March for her work as a chief editor of United World International.
