Russia’s Investigative Committee opened a homicide investigation after the daughter of Russian nationalist intellectual Alexandr Dugin was killed in a car explosion.

The head of one of Ukraine’s breakaway separatist regions blamed the blast on Kiev authorities.

The daughter of  Russian nationalist ideologist Alexandr Dugin, who is often referred to as “Putin’s brain”, has been killed when her car exploded on the outskirts of Moscow.

According to family members quoted by Russian media, Dugin, a vocal supporter of Kremlin’s offensive in Ukraine, was the likely target of the Saturday night blast as his daughter borrowed his car at the last minute.

Daria Dugina, born in 1992, was killed when a bomb placed in the Toyota Land Cruiser she was driving went off as she was returning from a cultural festival she had attended with her father.

She was driving on a highway near the village of Bolshie Vyzyomy, some 40 kilometres outside Moscow, Russia’s Investigative Committee said in a statement.
