Russia alleged on Monday that a Ukrainian agent killed Darya Dugina, the daughter of ultra-nationalist philosopher Alexander Dugin, who is known as “Putin’s brain.”

Russia’s counterintelligence service, the FSB, has recognized Darya Dugina’s alleged murderer as 43-year-old Natalia Vovk, a Ukrainian spy who then fled to Estonia.

Dugina died after her car exploded in flames while she was driving home on Saturday evening. It is thought that her father, Alexander Dugin, may have been the intended target of the attack.

According to Russian media outlet 112, the pair were due to travel back from an event on Saturday evening in the same car before Dugin made the decision to travel separately from his daughter at the last minute.

Footage posted on Telegram appears to show Dugin watching in shock as emergency services arrive at the scene of the burning wreck of a vehicle.

Russia publishes video implicating Ukrainian agent

FSB published a video compilation allegedly that opens with Vovk entering Russia in her grey Mini Cooper, which sports plates issued by the Kremlin-backed separatist Donetsk People’s Republic.

A second portion of the video appears to show Vovk entering the apartment building where Dugina lived in Moscow.

A doorbell camera offers a clear view of the woman’s face as she stands in front of the front door and then answers a call on her phone.

The final portion of the video shows Vovk’s Mini Cooper—now featuring Ukrainian plates— being subjected to an inspection on the Russian-Estonian border following Dugina’s killing.

A female border agent instructs in Russian Vovk to open all the doors in her car and the glove compartment and to remove her luggage from the trunk.

Vovk, wearing a pink tracksuit and dark sunglasses, appears to comply with the inspection, after which she is allowed to proceed on her way.

According to FSB, the prime suspect in the assassination, Vovk, had arrived in Russia on July 23rd with her 12-year-old daughter, Sophia Shaban, and moved into the same apartment building in Moscow where Dugina lived to gather information about the Kremlin propagandist’s lifestyle and habits.

TASS reported, citing official sources, that Vovk followed Dugina around in a Mini Cooper with Kazakh license plates.

Ukraine was quick to deny any involvement in the 29-year-old Dugina’s killing with President Volodymyr Zelensky’s chief adviser, Mykhailo Podolyak, declaring: “We are not a criminal state, unlike Russia, and definitely not a terrorist state.”
