Speeding down a highway outside of Moscow on Saturday night returning from a festival, the foreign-made SUV of 29-year-old Darya Dugina, daughter of a man many call Putin’s “brain,” was blown to bits.

Apparently, a bomb placed on the underside of the car detonated and the career of the up-and-coming star Darya, an extremist radio broadcaster, blogger, and pro-Putin political activist was abruptly ended.

Many in Russia are saying that the bomb was meant for her father but if you know anything about the Duginas, then most likely the bomb was meant for both of them.

Dugina died at the scene after “an explosive device, presumably installed in the Toyota Land Cruiser, went off on a public road and the car caught fire” at around 9.00 p.m. local time on Saturday, near the village of Bolshiye Vyazemy, according to the press service of the Russian Investigative Committee, as reported by the Russian state news agency TASS.

The bomb was detonated remotely, a law enforcement official told TASS Monday. “Presumably, the car was monitored and its movement was controlled,” the unnamed official told the news agency (Car Bomb Kills Daughter).

Inside Russia, vile Putinists are already warning that if it is learned that Ukraine had a hand in the assassination, then there will be an immediate response.

“If the Ukrainian trace is confirmed… then we should talk about the policy of state terrorism implemented by the Kyiv regime,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a Telegram post. “There have been plenty of facts accumulated over the years: from political calls for violence to the leadership and participation of Ukrainian state structures in crimes,” she said (Car Bomb Kills Daughter).

Why it wasn’t Ukraine

It wasn’t Ukraine for two reasons. The first is simply this: The Russians in Moscow moved into action too quickly to “solve” the mystery.

When something like this happens, no policeman, no detective, no district attorney (they don’t have DAs)…
