VLADIMIR Putin’s “spiritual leader” Alexander Dugin narrowly escaped a deadly car bomb that blew up his sanctioned daughter, reports say.
The neo-Nazi mystic, known as “Putin’s Rasputin,” switched cars at the last minute while exiting an event he and Darya had attended as guests of honor.
According to violinist and pal Peter Lundstrem, he was about to leave the traditional family celebration at the Zakharovo estate with her when he got into another vehicle.
Darya, a political analyst and editor of the pro-Russian publication United World International, was instead struck by a fatal jeep explosion, reports Gazeta.
She is said to have been killed instantly by the blast on the outskirts of the Russian capital near the village of Bolshie Vyazemy.
The controversial socialite is believed to be driving a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado when the vehicle burst into flames.
Devastated, Alexander was seen arriving at the scene of the incident, horrified, holding his head in his hands as he watched.
The jeep believed to be Darya’s is engulfed in a devastating fire while emergency services desperately try to put it out.
The video, shared on Telegram channels Baza and 112, also shows shocked onlookers surveying the scene.
Just hours earlier, Darya had been walking through a park with her father, the philosopher known as “Putin’s Brain.”
Local media quickly described the allegedly deadly car bomb as an assassination attempt on the Russian author.
Darya’s father is a close friend and advisor to the Russian president, who sparked rumors that he was instrumental in influencing Putin’s strategy.
Alongside Alexander, who has faced intense scrutiny, Darya has also been reprimanded by the West for her publication UWI, which spreads misinformation.
She was sanctioned by the UK and US back in April for running a “platform for Russian ultra-nationalists to spread disinformation and propaganda.”
Like Rasputin, her father is said to pull the puppet strings of Russian politics, and his ideas are said to have even influenced Putin.
Like his namesake, Alexander sported a huge, tousled beard. He has long called for an invasion of Ukraine and adamantly believes Moscow has the right to rule all of Europe and Asia.
