BREAKING: Assassination Attempt on Putin Ally Alexander Dugin Kills Daughter Instead


The daughter of Putin ally Alexander Dugin was killed in a car bombing Saturday in Moscow.

29-year-old Daria Dugina died after her vehicle exploded while she was driving it.

It is believed that the car bomb may have been meant for Dugin himself.

Video has surfaced which allegedly shows Dugin on the scene as the car is still on fire.

Dugin helped lay the groundwork for Russian president Vladimir Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine.

Russian authorities have opened up a murder investigation.

Video of the aftermath was posted to Twitter:

Russia has officially opened up a murder investigation.

The New York Times has the latest on the car bombing that killed Daria Dugina:

A car bomb in a Moscow suburb killed the adult daughter of a Russian ultranationalist who helped lay the ideological foundation for President Vladimir V. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, a brazen attack that injected new uncertainty into the nearly six-month-long war.

The Russian authorities said on Sunday that they had opened a murder investigation into the death a night earlier of Daria Dugina, 29, after the Toyota Land Cruiser she was driving exploded on a highway 20 miles west of Moscow and burst into flames, scattering pieces across the road.


Ms. Dugina was the daughter of Aleksandr Dugin — a self-educated philosopher and long a leading proponent of an aggressive, imperialist Russia who has been urging the Kremlin to escalate its assault on Ukraine.

Russian state television described the powerful explosion that shattered the windows of nearby homes as a “terrorist act” that had targeted Mr. Dugin and ended up killing his daughter because he took a different car at the last minute.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the incident.

It is still unclear if Dugin was indeed the target, or if his daughter was all along.
