UN calls for investigation into Moscow car bombing

Western media and observers described Dugin as one of the Kremlin’s “ideological brains” and a major influence on Putin.

He has worked as an adviser to a number of Russian politicians.

Darya Dugina is also a political commentator who takes a hard line on the West and on Ukraine.

The Un has called for an investigation to determine the truth behind the Moscow car bomb that killed Darya Dugina, the daughter of a leading Russian academic.

“We call for an investigation to verify the full truth behind Dugina’s death,” Stephane Dujarric, a spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, told media on Aug. 22.

Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vasily Nebenzia said he had asked the U.N. Security Council for an emergency meeting Thursday on the zaporizhzhia plant situation, saying he would mention the bombing during the meeting.

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) on August 22 accused Ukrainian citizen Natalya Pavlovna Vovk of carrying out the bombing of the car of prominent Russian academic and political commentator Alexander Dugin in Moscow, killing his daughter Darya Dugina on August 20.

The FSB said Vovk and her 12-year-old daughter entered Russia on July 23, appeared at Dugina’s residence and left Russia with her daughter for Estonia on Aug. 21.

Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukraine’s president, said the russian information was “fictitious” and unreasonable. Podolyak insisted Kiev was not involved.

Meanwhile, exiled former Russian lawmaker Ilya Ponomarev claimed the National Republican Army (NRA) guerrilla group carried out the car bomb but provided no evidence. Russian and Ukrainian officials have not commented on Ponomarev’s report.
