Aleksandr Dugin is the father of Darya Dugin and is a well-known thought leader within the ultranationalist movement in Russia. He is recognized for having a significant impact on President Vladimir Putin’s perspective on the world.
There have been allegations that a close friend of the daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin has passed away in the metropolitan area of Moscow.
According to reports from the local media, Darya Dugin was killed when the fire broke out in her car as she was traveling home.
It is unknown whether or whether her father, Aleksandr Dugin, the famous Russian philosopher and “Putin’s brain,” was the intended target of an attack.
It is reported that Mr. Dugin is close to the Russian president. He is well-known for his advocacy of ultranationalism and is considered to be close to the president.
According to Russian media outlet 112, the father and daughter were planning to go back together from an event on Saturday evening in the same car until Mr. Dugin made the spur-of-the-moment decision to go to the event alone without his daughter.
The video, which has not been independently authenticated, was shared on Telegram and appears to show Mr. Dugin in a state of shock as emergency workers arrive at the scene of a fiery car accident.
An unnamed law enforcement official confirmed to the RIA news agency that a vehicle had caught fire on a road in the Odintsovo district of the Moscow area, but the officer did not provide any further information on the incident.
There has been no official comment issued by Russian government representatives as of yet.
Despite the fact that he does not work for the government, the father of Ms. Dugin is considered to be a close friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin and is known as “Putin’s Rasputin.”
The philosopher’s daughter, Darya Dugin, is a prominent journalist and commentator who advocated for Russia to invade Ukraine.
At the beginning of this year, the authorities in the United Kingdom sanctioned her after accusing her of contributing to “disinformation” on the internet in relation to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
It is thought that Aleksandr Dugin’s ultranationalist writings had a big impact on how Vladimir Putin sees the world, and he has a strong link to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
In the past, the ideologue has shown support for Russian aggression against Ukraine, and the US government put sanctions on him in 2015 for his alleged role in Moscow’s 2014 takeover of Crimea.
