According to video uploaded online, a suspected car bomb attack that murdered his daughter was attended by an ultra-nationalist Russian thinker with connections to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to Russian official media, Daria Dugina, the 29-year-old daughter of Alexander Dugin, was riding in a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado when it detonated Saturday near the hamlet of Velyki Vyazomy on the outskirts of Moscow.
According to the Investigative Committee division for the Moscow region, an SUV bomb was put and that is what caused the explosion.
According to some Russian media sources, Dugina was returning from a cultural fair she had attended with her father when the explosion occurred. They said Dugin was the owner of the car, who made the last-minute decision to take a different vehicle.
There is speculation that Dugin—who is often referred to as “Putin’s brain” and “Putin’s Rasputin”—may have been the intended target of the attack.
