VLADIMIR Putin has branded the killing of his war guru’s daughter in a car bomb attack as a “vile crime”.
Alexander Dugin called for vengeance for the blast that wiped out his 30-year-old daughter Darya Dugina as it’s claimed Putin himself may have even ordered the hit.

The man sometimes described as “Putin’s brain” reportedly suffered a heart attack following Saturday evening’s bomb attack.
In a message released by the Kremlin, Putin said: “A vile, cruel crime ended the life of Daria Dugina, a bright, talented person with a real Russian heart – kind, loving, sympathetic and open.”
Ultra-nationalist figure Dugin is said to be in hospital after dodging the attempted assassination, with unconfirmed reports saying he suffered a heart attack.
In his first statement since the attack, Dugin denounced what he called the “terrorist attack carried out by the Nazi Ukrainian regime”.
“But they will not succeed. Our hearts yearn for more than just revenge or retribution,” he said.
“It’s too petty, it’s not Russian style. We need only our victory. My daughter laid her life on its altar – so please win.”
But the Neo-Nazi mystic narrowly escaped the fatal blast after switching cars at the last.
Video taken immediately after the bombing shows Dugin with his hands to his head in shock as he stares at the burning wreck of the car.
Rogue elements within the Russian security services and resistance fighters who want to overthrow the regime are among the suspects.
Other experts raised the possibility that Putin himself may have ordered the hit on Dugin after facing criticism from his adviser for not going far enough in Ukraine.
Dugina, a Russian journalist, had reported from Ukraine since the start of the war for pro-Russian media, including from the Azovstal steel works in Mariupol.
She was sanctioned last month by the British government as “a frequent and high-profile contributor of disinformation in relation to Ukraine.”
No group has claimed responsibility for Saturday evening’s bombing on a highway in southwest Moscow.
Russia has bizarrely placed the blame on a female Ukrainian assassin who it claims snuck into Moscow with her 12-year-old daughter.
The FSB, Russia’s secret security service, has announced it has “solved” the murder of journalist Darya Dugina, daughter of notorious Russian nationalist Alexander Dugin.
Putin’s spies even claim that Dugina’s assassin snuck in and out of Russia in a Mini Cooper in a killing with echoes of the classic 1969 film The Italian Job.
