According to the Russian news agency Tass, the car is owned by his father and the attack was directed at him. Dugina was driving the car. According to Russian media, Dugin and her daughter had been at a scheduled conference at an event taking place outside Moscow and were due to travel back together, but decided to go separately at the last minute. The pro-Russian news Telegram channel 112 has broadcast images of the scene immediately after the explosion, in which a large fire can be seen on the side of the road and multiple rubble on the asphalt.

Alexander Dugin’s work draws from Russian Christian nationalism, an ideology that coincides with Putin’s worldview and is connected to American Christian nationalist activism. Dugin has become a benchmark for the extreme right beyond Russia.
