The car bombing outside Moscow on Saturday night, which took the life of journalist Darya Dugina, was orchestrated and carried out by Ukrainian secret services, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has said, as per media reports.
Dugina was killed while returning from a conservativefamily festival held in Moscow, RT reported.
She was the daughter of anti-Western author and political commentator Aleksandr Dugin. Like her father, she was known for her vocal support of the Russian military operation in Ukraine.
In a statement on Monday, the FSB said that Ukrainian national Natalya Vovk (43) carried out the bombing.
According to the FSB, Vovk arrived in Russia with her teenage daughter on July 23 and rented an apartment at the building in Moscow where the victim also lived, RT reported.
Vovk and her daughter attended the ‘Tradition’ festival on Saturday, where Aleksandr Dugin was giving a lecture and his daughter was also present, the FSB said.
Investigators stated earlier that a bomb was planted under the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV Darya used to leave the event. According to the FSB, Vovk detonated the bomb remotely, killing Darya as she was driving on the highway. She then left with her daughter for Estonia on Sunday.
The FSB added that Vovk used a car with a licence plate from the Donetsk People’s Republic when entering Russia, but replaced it with a Kazakhstan licence plate when driving in Moscow, and a Ukrainian licence plate when crossing into Estonia, RT reported.
