Ukraine is bracing for a likely escalation in Russian attacks following last night's killing of the daughter of Alexander Dugin - Darya Dugina - by what looked to be a car bomb as she was driving his car home from an event. Based on the details that emerged, many believe it was an assassination attempt on the prominent but deeply controversial Russian political commentator and philosopher himself.
Contrary to current exaggerated Western mainstream headlines referring to him as "Putin's brain" - there's no clear evidence that Dugin and Putin have ever even met (much less a photograph of the two together or in the same room, which we've yet to find), though the influence of Dugin's thought on certain Russian political circles is clear.
He's long been central to developing the so-called 'Russian world' ideology, but his influence on actual Kremlin policy circles has been marginal at best especially since 2014, given he's been much more hawkish and maximalist when it comes to the Ukraine crisis, at times uncomfortably so for Russia's political leadership.
On Sunday, Russia's Investigative Committee said in an official statement that it has opened a murder investigation following a car bomb being detonated under Alexander Dugin's vehicle, which only his daughter Darya was driving at the time (eyewitnesses say he switched cars at the last minute when returning from an event).
According to Russia’s Investigative Committee, the Toyota Land Cruiser she was driving was ripped apart by a car bomb in the Moscow region, near the village of Bolshie Vyazemy, in a targeted killing by unknown entities:
"The investigation believes that the crime was planned in advance and is of a contract nature," the statement said, adding that investigators had "established that the explosive device was placed under the bottom of the car on the driver’s side."
Pro-Russian Donbas militia leaders, Denis Pushilin foremost among them, have called on fighters to quickly “avenge” Dugina’s death. At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is now warning his citizens that severe escalation looms.
Warning of potential stepped-up Russian attacks and the need for vigilance, Zelensky said in the hours following reports of the targeted hit:
"We should be conscious of the fact that this week Russia may try to do something particularly nasty," the Ukrainian leader said in his daily video address late on Saturday. “But Russia has done the same constantly each week throughout the past six months.”
Days ahead of Ukraine's independence day celebrations, some regional governors are also taking extra precautions, according to The Wall Street Journal:
In the northeastern Kharkiv region, part of which remains under Russian occupation, governor Oleh Synehubov announced a series of restrictions on movement this week including a 36-hour curfew beginning on the eve of Independence Day on Tuesday until early morning on Thursday.
"Please treat such steps with understanding and prepare to stay at home or in bomb shelters—this is our security," he wrote on the Telegram social-media platform. "We won’t give the enemy the chance for any provocations. On the day of our independence we will be particularly alert."
So far, President Putin has yet to officially react or weigh in on the car bombing which targeted civilians on Russian soil. While it's clear that Alexander Dugin is a deeply controversial and polarizing figure even within Russia, and much more so abroad, some pundits are pointing out that the hit could have been intended for Darya from the beginning. Little is known at this point regarding precise motives or who exactly was behind it, as the investigation continues.
Even before the Saturday night car bombing, both sides of the Ukraine war appear to be bracing for further escalation given the latest string of Ukrainian attacks deep inside Crimea, including the weekend UAV strike on Russia's Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol.

Update(2310ET): Russia's English language state RT News is confirming the death of Darya Dugina, the daughter of veteran Russian political commentator and Putin ally Alexander Dugin, in what appears to have been a targeted hit - possibly an attempt on her father Alexander's life. RT however is still calling the reports "preliminary" until government authorities confirm the identity of the deceased.
"The incident took place on a highway some 20 kilometers west of Moscow around 21:35 local time, with witnesses saying that the blast rocked the vehicle right in the middle of the road, scattering debris all around," according to new details in RT. "The crippled car fully engulfed in flames, then crashed into a fence, according to photos and videos from the scene."
"Emergency services said one person was inside the car and was instantly killed by the blast and crash – a female whose body was reportedly recovered burned beyond recognition."
RT writes further: "Authorities have yet to confirm the identity of the victim, but multiple Russian Telegram channels and media sources reported that the victim was 30-year-old Darya Dugina (Platonova). Her father, Alexander Dugin, was spotted at the scene soon after the incident, visibly shocked, according to several videos circulating on social media."
While an official cause of the blast hasn't been identified as yet, there's widespread speculation it was an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
There's also much speculation centered on the apparent bombing being a likely attempt on Alexander Dugin, with unconfirmed reports saying she had been driving his car and he was in another vehicle.
According to The Daily Beast, citing local reports:
Alexander Dugin was meant to be in the vehicle his daughter was driving but had gotten in a different one at the last second, according to Pyotr Lundstrem, a Russian violinist quoted by the outlet.
Dugin had reportedly been following right behind his daughter and had watched as her car exploded. Photos shared by Baza appeared to show Dugin distraught at the scene, holding his head in both hands as he stood in front of the fiery wreckage.
Denis Pushilin, the Russian proxy leader of Ukraine's occupied Donetsk, angrily blamed “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime” for the blast, writing on Telegram that they had been “trying to liquidate Alexander Dugin” but “blew up his daughter.”
“In loving memory of Darya, she is a true Russian girl,” Pushilin wrote.
Pro-Kremlin Telegram channels and social media pages similarly blamed Ukraine for the explosion and called on Russians to “avenge” Dugina’s death.
This, along with recent attacks inside Crimea, could indeed mean a greater escalation in the Ukraine war.

The daughter of Alexander Dugin - a close ally and adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin - has reportedly been killed in what many are assuming was an assassination attempt meant for her father.
Darya Dugin was 'blown to pieces' near the Moscow suburb of Bolshiye Vyazyomy, according to reports, which say that Alexander had originally planned to travel back with her from a festival before deciding to ride in a separate car, according to the Daily Mail and other outlets.
According to Russia's state-owned TASS, local law enforcement confirmed that a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado had blown up, but did not confirm the victim's identity - only that it was a female. A man identified by TASS as a Dugin associate said it was Darya, but there has been thus far no official confirmation.
Russian outlet Baza reports that the 29-year-old had been returning home from "Tradition" - a literature and music festival when the blast occurred. She was reportedly driving for around 10 minutes before the detonation. The outlet also quoted Russian violinist Pyotr Lundstrem, who (and how would he know?) that Alexander was meant to be in the vehicle. Instead, he was reportedly following her car when it exploded.
Dugin is the former chief editor of the pro-Putin Tsargrad TV network and has been often portrayed in Western media as being a 'mastermind' of the Ukraine invasion, as well as an intellectual/philosopher who's had a large influence in Russia's post-Soviet nationalism.
In an Instagram post, Denis Pushilin, head of the Donetsk People's Republic in eastern Ukraine, called it an 'attack' by 'vile villains,' adding "The terrorists of the Ukrainian regime, trying to eliminate Alexander Dugin, blew up his daughter... In a car. Blessed memory of Daria, she is a real Russian girl!"
"The tenacity of these Ukro-Reich morons is amazing. Everyone, if possible, needs to be home in the next hour," he added.
An alleged photo of the scene was posted to Telegram by "MOW!" Moscow News, with the caption (translated): "All that remains of the blown up car of the daughter of the famous public figure Alexander Dugin on the Mozhaisk highway in the Moscow region. The SUV of Darya Dugina detonated while driving, after which it caught fire."

In the horrifying news this morning, Alexander Dugin's daughter Darya Dugina got killed in a car bomb blast. Almost all the national and international media is covering the terrifying accident, trying to decode the possibilities.

Who Was Darya Dugina, and Why Was She Killed? Alexander Dugin's Daughter In A Bombing Touted As Rashism Killing
Mixedarticle - By Shreya Pokharel | On August 21, 2022, 01:09 AM
Darya Dugina was the daughter of Alexander Dugin, Putin's propagandist. She was a victim of a bomb blast that happened on Mozhayskoye highway around 9.45 p.m on Saturday.
The news organizations Baza and 112, which reported that the 29-year-old was instantaneously killed in the explosion, widely disseminated pictures of the detonation on Telegram.
Law enforcement sources cited by Russia's TASS news agency verified that a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado had blown up, but they did not confirm the driver's name, just stating that the casualty was a female. However, a guy who TASS identified as a friend of Dugina verified that she had passed away.
According to the Russian news source Baza, Dugina was traveling home from the "Tradition" literary and musical festival when the explosion took place. She apparently only had the keys to the car for 10 minutes before the explosion.
Darya Dugina was sanctioned by the U.S. government in March for her involvement in Project Lakhta, a Kremlin-run influence operation. She had been vociferous in her support of Russia's war against Ukraine.
Darya Dugina Bombing and Accident Details
As per the details of the incident, Dugina was supposed to be with her father in the same car. However, last minute the plans changed, and Alexander did not get into the car, leaving his daughter alone in it. Now, the experts say that the bombing could be specifically for the senior Dugina that unfortunately took away the junior's life.
However, nothing can be confirmed as the investigations are still going on. Just after the horrifying accident, his elder daughter of Alexander could be seen in the scene trying to figure out the death of her sister.
Now, Twitter is filled with condolence messages for her and her family. While many are blaming Ukraine regime terrorists for the blast, most of them are genuinely paying her tribute and acknowledging her contribution to the country.
A Twitteratti says, "I am completely devastated to hear of the passing of Darya Dugina. I am praying for her family. The righteous people of the world stand with the Dugin family and the Russian people against the terrorists and criminals responsible for this assassination."
Similarly, another one writes, "Woke to the awful news that Darya Dugina has been assassinated via car bomb. Her father, Alexander Dugin, was on the scene. They murdered a young woman just to get to her father. That is the nature of our enemy. I can no longer stay silent. Such an escalation will not be forgiven."
What is rashism?

The worst wars in the history of mankind are those that are fought not for territory but for ideas.
Their goal is not to just conquer foreign lands, but to remake the area and the world according to their ideas. If someone interferes with this idea – they should be destroyed.
These were the religious wars of the 16-17th centuries.

This was the Second World War – a bloody clash of two totalitarian ideologies: the Nazi and the Communist.
Ukraine found itself at the epicenter of this confrontation, the participants of which wanted not only to seize its rich resources but also to transform Ukrainians either into submissive slaves for Aryan masters or into rootless proletarians, the builders of a communist paradise.
The brutality of the current war is also due to the fact that the Russians aim to conquer not only Ukraine but also Ukrainians. The Kremlin needs Ukrainians to become the builders of the Russian imperial project called the “Russian Peace”. It is with these words that the Russians view their vision of world reconstruction. A more accurate definition of the current Kremlin ideology is given by publicists who call it “rashism”. The term is just taking root in political debates.
The word itself has a close indication of fascism/Nazism.
Indeed, rashism has much in common with these criminal ideologies – the belief in the supremacy of one’s own people and thus their right to decide the fate of others, emphasizing its anti-democracy, cult of leadership and power, neglect of human rights and international law, belief in an international conspiracy to try and stop it, an appeal to their heroic past and glory which must be revived.
The aesthetics of rashism are borrowed from fascism/Nazism – from the latest symbols of Russian aggression like the “Z”, the rally in Luzhniki which could easily be a film directed by Leni Riefenstahl. However, like everything in Russia, it was not without its glitches and crooked lines.
But rashism – is not just Russian neo-fascism. An important role is played by its Russian background, that unique Russian sound, the peculiarities of the Russian culture. It received such massive support from the Russians because it plays on their never-ending imperial sentiments, appealing to Russia’s past greatness, which it wanted to restore.
The wars of aggression of the Russian Federation are justified by the “gathering of Russian lands.”
The “Russian Peace” clearly appeals to another imperial project, the “Pax Romana” and one of the key Russian historical myths about Moscow as the Third Rome. The Russian Orthodox Church plays an important role in promoting this ideology of rashism. Especially in Ukraine.
The communist legacy is also very influential. No wonder Stalin is the most prominent figure not only for Putin but for most Russians. The Kremlin uses Soviet repressive practices, including the imprisonment of dissidents, the execution of civilians as intimidation, deportations and concentration camps.
But that’s not all.
For Putin and his followers, the USSR is the “promised land” of the past where they are to lead their people. Because the Soviet Union was the highest stage of development for the Russian Empire, the period of its greatest power should be revived. Therefore, we have a bizarre mixture of the legacy of the Romanov empire and the Bolsheviks who destroyed it, in rashism. However, they are all united by the desire for Russian greatness and a belief in its messianic role in the world.
The contradictions between the components of the ideology of rashism, which may come from historically opposite sources, are perceived as a whole because the adherents do not use a rational approach, but only an emotional one. For them, this ideology is an object of faith, a substitute to religious practices.
Another important element that rashism has borrowed from communism/Bolshevism, is a social hatred of the rich and successful. That is why they are inspired to commit crimes in the occupied territories. “Who let you live so well?” – they shouted in Bucha while they robbed, raped, and killed local Ukrainians, not only because they were Ukrainians but also because they were more successful.
Dzhokhar Dudayev, one of the Kremlin’s enemies, said: “Your great Russian dream is to drag everyone else in the same shit by the throat. This is Russism.” This is what we now call rashism.
This ideology is not just a painful view of the world of millions of people. It turns the current war in Ukraine into a genocide. This is an ideology that encourages Russians to shoot not only at Ukrainian soldiers, but also at civilians; to destroy not only our military facilities but also hospitals and maternity wards, museums, and books.
But rashism has already lost because it has no future because it is completely turned toward the past, trying to turn history backward. It requires enormous efforts, inflicts great sacrifices on those who try to reach it and it will eventually end in the complete collapse of Russia – a country without a future.

*Follow the WEF trail to Switzerland to discover the Khazarian Mafia hiding behind Klaus Schwab and his cohorts. The US and its people have nothing to do with the disasters caused to the ordinary people of the Earth.
The Khazarians have once again constructed an intricate web, whose aim is to destroy the world's economy by setting people up against each other, blocking each other's supply chains, leaving just death and ruins.
What everybody must be aware of is that this is not a war to prevent Putin from occupying Ukraine, but an attempt by the evil Khazarian Jews/WEF/NATO to control yet another country in their growing New World Order. They are simply using Ukraine as a battlefield. Their plan is to destroy totally the world's economy and turn the population into slaves.
Like the Freemasons, they have also life-threatening rules in their membership, one being REVENGE, 10 times harder than was ever perpetrated on them.
Russia in particular, in the past, has expelled the Khazars several times. I have all of 7 detailed articles in book format on the Khazarian Jews if anybody is interested in further information.
Putin, and earlier also Trump, are the ONLY Presidents who have enough guts to see what they are attempting to do to the world population and have sufficient courage to do something about it.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
