Daughter of mastermind behind Russian invasion of Ukraine killed in attack

29-year-old Daria Dugina was driving her father’s car, with whom she had been to a folklore festival.

Images on social media show how Aleksandr Dugin witnessed the explosion and reacts in horror. A burning car can be seen in the background. Russian media assume an attack.

Conditions investigated

The car belonged to Aleksandr Dugin himself, a confidant of the family told state news agency TASS. “It was her father’s car. She drove it today, while Aleksandr returned in a different way. He or both were targeted.” Father and daughter were returning from a folklore festival. The explosion happened on a highway outside Moscow.

Dugin is a well-known figure within the Kremlin. He is a philosopher and Russian nationalist who is considered to be the mastermind behind the Russian invasion of Ukraine. His nickname is ‘Rasputin’ because of his influence on President Vladimir Putin. The exact circumstances of the explosion are still being investigated.

‘Father was a target’

Separatist leader Denis Pushilin of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, in eastern Ukraine, says “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime” are involved in the incident. According to him, their target was the woman’s father, Russian state news agency RIA Novosti reported.
