Russia has accused Ukrainian special services of killing the daughter of one of Vladimir Putin’s allies in a car bombing near Moscow at the weekend.

Journalist Darya Dugina, aged 29, died on Saturday when a vehicle she was driving exploded near Russia’s capital.

Her prominent ultra-nationalist father, Alexander Dugin, said to be close to Mr Putin, may have been the intended target of the attack.

Ukrainian officials have denied any involvement in the explosion.

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said yesterday it had solved the case and said that Ukraine was directly responsible.

The suspect then escaped to Estonia after the explosion, the FSB said.

An adviser to Ukraine’s President Zelensky, Mykhailo Podolyak, said the FSB’s version of events was “Russian propaganda” from “a fictional world”.

The FSB later released video of the accused’s car entering Russia, security footage of her entering what is said to be Ms Dugina’s building, and leaving Russia.
