Ukraine claims the Moscow car attack was an inside job by Russia: Report

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! The daughter of a well-known, pro-war Russian thinker was killed in a vehicle bombing in Moscow on Saturday, according to a senior Ukrainian official.

Daria Dugina, 29, was killed in the Moscow car bombing while operating her father’s SUV. Alexander Dugin, a well-known Russian philosopher who has earned the moniker “Putin’s brain,” is her father. Oleksiy Danilov, the secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, denied FSB claims that Ukrainian operators were responsible for the attack. Danilov contended that the FSB was in fact to blame for the bombing and was using Ukraine as a scapegoat.

Danilov allegedly told Ukrainian TV, “We don’t operate like this. “Our lads and girls are tasked with greater duties. The FSB accomplished this and now claims that one of our individuals was responsible.”

According to the Russian FSB, the Ukrainian special services “planned and carried out the attack, which was directed at Dugin.”

According to the intelligence agency, Natalia Vovk, a native of Ukraine, committed the attack before evading to Estonia. Sofia Shaban, 12, and Vovk are said to have traveled to Russia on July 23. Vovk is said to have rented an apartment in the same complex as Dugina.


Vovk allegedly used three different license plates when she was living in Moscow, according to the FSB. Using license plates from the so-called Dontesk People’s Republic, a separatist entity in Ukraine, she entered Russia. According to the FSB, she used Ukrainian plates to leave the country after using Kazakhstani plates when she was in Moscow.

After hearing her father speak about Russian customs and history, Dugina was leaving a festival. Dugin apparently made the last-minute decision to ride in a different vehicle even though he was meant to be in the car with his daughter.

Rebekah Koffler, a strategic intelligence specialist and the author of “Putin’s Playbook,” told Fox News Digital on Monday that the FSB’s claims should not be taken at face value and that the organization’s need for quick outcomes may have compromised its accuracy.

“The FSB is not entirely trustworthy. Ever. That doesn’t imply that the findings of their initial inquiry into Daria Dugina’s death are flawed.” said Koffler. The FSB is under a ton of pressure to act quickly because this was such a high-profile tragedy.
