NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Tuesday’s funeral service for Darya Dugina, who was killed in a car explosion over the weekend and was the daughter of a prominent nationalist in Russia, had a very political undertone as she was honored as a martyr and a symbol of opposition to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
Friends and politicians alike attended the service at Moscow’s TV center where Dugina was laid to rest in a dark wooden casket in front of a sizable black-and-white portrait of the 29-year-old, according to Reuters.
Although Kyiv has denied any participation in the assassination, Russian security services have blamed Ukraine directly for the death of the Russian journalist and nationalist pundit who was killed in a vehicle explosion outside of Moscow on Saturday.
Following the loss of PUTIN’s ally’s daughter in an alleged assassination, Ukraine fears increased aggression from Russia.
Her father, Alexander Dugin, was reportedly heard saying, “If her awful death had impacted someone, she would have implored them to preserve sacred (Russian) Orthodoxy, the people, and the Fatherland.”
He said, “She died for Russia, in the motherland and on the frontline, which is here and not in Ukraine.
According to reports, Dugina embraced the nationalistic views of her father and was punished by the United States and the United Kingdom for disseminating false information about the conflict in Ukraine.
According to reports, her father served as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “spiritual counselor” during the horrific conflict in Ukraine. Because of his influence over the Kremlin leader, some have referred to him as “Putin’s Brain.”

According to reports, Konstantin Malofeyev, a close friend of the ultra-nationalistic family, said on Tuesday that Dugina’s passing made Russia’s victory in Ukraine all the more significant.
During the service, he added, “The people fighting against us do not understand that the Russian people is not just made up of individuals who are living now.” “But is composed of people who have lived before us and people who will live after us. And with the blood of our victims, we will become stronger.
And because of the sad death of our dearly beloved Dasha “Darya,” he continued, “we will undoubtedly win this war.
