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.

According to the Russian news source TASS, Dugina was born in 1992 and studied philosophy at Moscow State University.

Video that has been shared on the Telegram messaging app alleges to show an upset Dugin showing up and placing his hands over his head.

According to the video, Dugin was among the first people to arrive at the scene of his daughter’s death, according to Baza, a pro-Kremlin Telegram channel that frequently posts footage of crime scenes. It has been impossible for Newsweek to independently confirm the film.

The man was standing in the middle of a street that was covered in trash and sirens were blaring.

For a very long time, Dugin has argued in favour of the creation of a new, enormous Russian empire that would encompass all Russian-speaking and other nations, including Ukraine. Putin’s expansionist foreign policy is said to have been founded on his 1997 book Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia.

His writings are believed to have had an impact on both Russia’s takeover of Crimea in 2014 and its all-out invasion of Ukraine that got underway on February 24.

He has always advocated for Russia to be more assertive on the international stage and is in favour of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Similar viewpoints were held by his daughter, a political commentator and journalist who frequently appeared on the nationalist TV network Tsargrad to support Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

The U.S. and the U.K. imposed sanctions on both the father and the daughter.

Dugin, who was included to a sanctions list in 2015 after Russia annexed Crimea, is in charge of Geopolitica, a website that enables Russian ultra-nationalists to disseminate propaganda and disinformation, according to a statement from the U.S. Treasury in March.

The chief editor of the website United World International, Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian businessman with close ties to Putin, according to U.S. authorities, was the subject of Dugina’s sanctions.
