Ukraine denies its involvement in death of Darya Dugina,
The daughter of an influential Russian political theorist often referred to as “Putin’s brain” was killed in a car bombing on the outskirts of Moscow, authorities said on Sunday.
The media tell us that the assassination attempt was actually planed for Alexander Dugin but in last moment his daughter Darya Dugina switched the car. The Russian investigation Committee said preliminary information indicate that the 29-year-old TV commentator Daria Dugina was killed by an explosive planted in the SUV she was driving on Saturday night.
According to the reports ‘ father was the intended target’. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the bloodshed gave rise to suspicions the the target was her father, Alexander Dugin, a nationalist philosopher and writer.
The explosion took place as his daughter was returning from a cultural festival she had attended with him. Some Russian media reports cited witnesses as saying that the SUV belonged to MR. Dugin and that he had decided at the last minute to travel in another vehicle.
This act of horrific attack is unusual for Moscow, is likely to aggravate tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
