Russian investigators are analyzing the scene of the explosion that killed Daria Duguina on Saturday evening near Moscow.

Russian security services (FSB) on Monday accused the “Ukrainian special services” of killing the daughter of a reputed ideologue close to the Kremlin, who died in the explosion of the car she was driving near Moscow, news agencies reported Russians.

Daria Duguina was killed on Saturday evening in the explosion of the vehicle she was driving on a road near the village of Bolshiye Viaziomy, about forty kilometers from Moscow.

Journalist and political scientist born in 1992, she was the daughter of Alexander Dougin, an ultranationalist ideologist and writer promoting an expansionist doctrine and fierce supporter of the Russian offensive in Ukraine.

Journalist and political scientist Daria Douguina died when the car she was in exploded.

The murder was planned and committed by Ukrainian special services, the FSB said in a statement quoted by Russian agencies.

According to the same source, the car driven by Daria Duguina was trapped by a woman of Ukrainian nationality born in 1979, identified by the FSB as Natalia Vovk, who arrived in Russia in July with her minor daughter, born in 2010.

Still according to the FSB, this person had notably rented an apartment in the building where Daria Douguina lived and she had gone to a cultural festival on Saturday where the journalist and political scientist was she also present.

According to the FSB, this Ukrainian woman then fled to Estonia with her daughter.

Implicated on Saturday by Russian media believing that the target of the attack was in fact Alexander Dougin, Ukraine had denied on Sunday any involvement in the death of Daria Douguina.

Ukraine certainly had nothing to do with the explosion [on Saturday], because we are not a criminal state, said an adviser to the Ukrainian presidency, Mikhaïlo Podoliak .

The political scientist close to the Kremlin Alexander Dugin

Promoter of Eurasism, a doctrine advocating an alliance between Europe and Asia under Russian leadership, Alexandre Douguine, who influences part of the French extreme right, has been targeted since 2014 by Union sanctions taken in the wake of Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.

In recent years, Ukraine has banned many of his books, including Ukraine. My war. Geopolitical Journal and Eurasian Revenge of Russia.

Mr. Dugin, dubbed Putin's mastermind by some media, is sometimes portrayed as being close to the Russian president. But many observers relativize his supposed influence in the Kremlin.
