Russia accuses Kiev of assassination. A 43-year-old Ukrainian woman would have prepared the bomb and, after detonating it remotely, would have fled to Estonia, the Russians claim.
Less than 48 hours after the death of Daria Dughina, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation claims to have elucidated in record time the circumstances of the bomb attack in which the daughter of the one considered “Putin’s brain” or “the new Rasputin” died.
Mary Ilyushina, CBS News: “A few hours ago, Dughin came out for the first time to comment on what happened. He said that simple revenge will not be enough and that only a Russian victory over Ukraine will avenge the death of his daughter, and this will be probably seen as a step towards an escalation (of the conflict).”
Wanting to demonstrate its investigative capabilities, Russia announced that it had identified the perpetrator of the attack: a 43-year-old Ukrainian woman, Natalia Vovk, who allegedly placed 400 grams of TNT under the driver’s seat and, after detonating the device, would have fled to Estonia. There would also be images of her in customs, the Russian authorities claim.
So far, however, Estonia has not received an official request from the Russian authorities regarding the extradition of Natalia Vovk.
“Reporter: Does the United States know who was behind the car bombing that killed Daria Dughina in Moscow?
Ned Price, wear. of vat. of the US State Department: I have nothing to say other than what you have all heard publicly, which is that Ukraine has denied any involvement in the attack on this person.
Reporter: So the United States believes that Ukraine is not behind this attack and rejects Moscow’s accusations?
Price: I have no doubt that the Russians will investigate this. I also have no doubt that the Russians will present certain conclusions.”
Who claimed the attack
But the attack was claimed by the self-titled National Republican Army – ANR, which operates inside Russia and is made up of ordinary citizens, politicians and Russian soldiers.
The announcement was made by former Russian deputy Ilia Ponomarev, expelled from Moscow after, in 2014, he was the only member of the State Duma who voted against the annexation of Crimea. Citing what he called an ANR manifesto, Ponomarev wrote that the partisans: “It declares President Putin a usurper of power and a war criminal who altered the Constitution, started a fratricidal war between the Slavic peoples and sent Russian soldiers to certain and senseless deaths. Poverty and coffins for some, palaces for others – the essence of Putin’s politics. We believe that disenfranchised people have the right to rebel against tyrants. Little will be dethroned and destroyed by us!”.
Vladimir Putin awarded Daria Dughina a posthumous decoration for courage and devotion
As far as he is concerned, the Kremlin leader reaffirmed his dogmas in a speech given on the occasion of the Russian Flag Day.
Vladimir Putin, Russian President: “Russia is a vigorous and independent world power. On the international stage, we are committed to pursuing only those policies that satisfy the vital interests of our country.”
On Monday evening, Vladimir Putin awarded Daria Dughina a posthumous decoration for courage and devotion.
Fighting continues in Ukraine
All this time, fighting continues in Ukraine.
Kiev’s armed forces again hit the strategic Antonovski bridge in Kherson, so that the Russians could no longer use it for the supply of troops.
On the other hand, the International Atomic Energy Agency continues consultations with Ukraine and Russia for a team of international inspectors to visit the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
Rafael Grossi, Director General of the IAEA: “The risk of a nuclear accident exists. We cannot say what magnitude it might have, but it could be very, very large. Therefore, we must prevent it.”
Russia has requested a new meeting of the UN Security Council on the subject of the Zaporozhye plant.
