Ukraine was not involved in the murder of the “Russian World” fascist ideologist Daria Dugina, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said during his interview with BBC on Oct. 7.

During the interview, the President was asked to comment on the allegations that Ukraine may be behind the car bombing neat Moscow that killed Dugina.

“We have nothing to do with this”, said Zelenskyy.

On Oct. 5, the New York Times, citing unnamed U.S. officials, alleged that Ukrainian secret services were behind the murder of Dugina.

On the night of Aug. 20, a car carrying Daria Dugina was blown up in the suburbs of Moscow. She, like her father, Alexander Dugin, was actively involved in spreading Russian fascist propaganda, justifying Russia’s war against Ukraine and advocating the genocide of the Ukrainian people.

The Kremlin’s propagandists blamed Ukraine and its political management for the murder of the daughter of Putin's associate, demanding that “decision-making centers” in Kyiv, including the President's Office and the Central Office of Ukraine’s Security Service, be attacked.

On Aug. 22, Russia’s FSB security service announced that they had “solved” Dugina's murder in two days, blaming it on “Ukrainian secret services.

According to the Russian secret service, Ukrainian citizen Natalia Vovk, who allegedly served in the Azov Regiment, and her daughter Sofia Shaban are suspected of the murder.

The National Guard and Azov have said the Russian claims are false.
