Russia is establishing a murder inquiry after a car bomb kills the daughter of a crucial Putin ally

August 23, 2022: -The daughter of the Russian ultra-nationalist often referred to as “Putin’s brain” lived murdered on Saturday following her car exploded in a possible contract kills, the country’s leading investigative body said in a statement.

Daria Dugina “died on the kspot” after the Toyota Land Cruiser. She drives blasted in Bolshye Vyazemy, a small village to the southeast of Moscow, the Investigative Committee of Russia said on its Telegram channel.

“The investigation believes that the crime was planned and is of a contract nature,” the statement added that investigators had “established that the explosive device was placed under the bottom of the car on the driver’s side.”

A murder investigation has been launched, the statement said.

Although Dugin doesn’t hold a government position, he is believed to influence Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His daughter had expressed similar views and had appeared as a commentator on the nationalist TV channel Tsargrad.

“Dasha, like her father, has been at the forefront of confrontation with the West,” Tsargrad said, which uses the familiar form of her name, the Associated Press reported.

Denis Pushilin, head of the separatist Donetsk People’s Republic, blamed it on “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime, trying to kill Alexander Dugin.”

However, Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, refuses that his government was involved in the death. “We are not a criminal state,” he said on Ukrainian television.

Dugin was first sanctioned by the United States in 2015 and was the leader of the Eurasian Youth Union, which recruits combatants to fight on behalf of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, the U.S. Treasury said in a statement released in the previous week.

His daughter Dugina was the chief editor of the “United World International” website that suggested Ukraine would “perish” if admitted to NATO and was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury in March.
