SOFREP reported a side-by-side breaking news when there were simultaneous “car crash accidents” involving Ukraine President Volodomyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the time, we were still speculating that the Ukrainians had a hand in the assassination of Daria Dugina, daughter of Putin’s close friend and ally. It is possible that the car she was in was targeted because his father was supposed to be in the car. However, as the tragic event turned out, it was Aleksandr’s daughter who was in the car.

Now, US intelligence agencies are saying Ukraine has a direct hand in this assassination.

Daria was killed on Aug. 20 in the Toyota Land Cruiser that was on its route to Moscow after attending the annual festival “Tradition,” which is an exclusive affair for art lovers. The festival was held at the Zakharovo estate, and the investigators confirmed they found an explosive device attached under the car, on the driver’s side.

Her father, Aleksandr, was born into a military intelligence family and was an anti-communist dissident in the 1980s. However, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, he co-founded a national party but also left soon after. Eventually, he started building up his political sphere of influence after he published the book “Foundations of Geopolitics” in 1997, which attracted a lot of Russians who were keen to rebuild the nation’s global impact through alliances.
