    U.S. did not know about impending assassination, sources say

    Published on

    The sources of The New York Times in the American intelligence services claim that the United States is not involved in organizing the murder of Russian political scientist Daria Dugina. They said that Kyiv acted without the knowledge of Washington.

    Representatives of the American intelligence services claim that the United States did not take part in the assassination attempt – “neither with the help of intelligence, nor in any other way “. Sources of the publication assure that the American intelligence services “did not know about the operation in advance and would have opposed the assassination if they had been consulted.”

    Reprimand and distrust

    Also, the sources of the publication claim that the special services prepared a special report, which examined the Ukrainian participation, it was made public last week. Subsequently, American officials reprimanded Ukrainian officials for killing Dugina. The sources did not disclose which of the US officials reprimanded the Ukrainian special services. It is also unknown to whom the reprimand was addressed and what kind of reaction ensued from Kyiv.

    In Kyiv, they repeatedly stated that they were not involved in organizing the murder of a Russian political scientist.

    Sources of the publication note that the American intelligence services were disappointed with the presence of Kyiv’s military secrets from Washington, especially concerning Russia. In their opinion, such actions by Kyiv endanger Ukrainian officials.

    This case of hiding information from American handlers is not the only one. The United States has repeatedly asked the Ukrainian authorities to report on the development and implementation of military plans, but the information came “with varying degrees of success” . NYT sources say US officials “do not have a complete picture of the competing centers of power in the Ukrainian government, including the military, security services, and President Zelensky’s office.” Washington is worried that the Russian Federation is “considering further steps to intensify the war, including through efforts to eliminate Ukrainian officials, in particular Zelensky” .

    Murder of a political scientist

    30-year-old Daria Dugina died on the evening of 20 August on the way from the festival “Tradition” in the village of Zakharovo near Moscow. Dugina’s car exploded on Mozhayskoye Highway in the Odintsovo urban district in front of her father, philosopher Alexander Dugin. Dugin was supposed to go with his daughter, but got into another car. A few days after the assassination attempt, Alexander Dugin stated that the target of the killers was his daughter, and not himself: “They beat her. For the Russian idea, for the religious idea, for the Orthodox idea, for the sovereign idea, for the protection of our people, our state ”.

    On August 22, the FSB announced that they had identified the killer. According to the ministry, the crime was “prepared and committed by the Ukrainian special services.” They claim that the performer was a citizen of Ukraine Natalya Vovk, born in 1979, who arrived in Russia on July 23, 2022, together with her daughter Shaban Sofia Mikhailovna, born in 2010. The FSB said that in order to obtain information about Dugina’s lifestyle, Vovk rented an apartment in the house where the deceased lived.

    The FSB specified that “the criminals used a Mini Cooper car to monitor Dugina.” When entering Russia, DPR numbers were used – E982ХН DPR, in Moscow – Kazakh 172AJD02, and when leaving – Ukrainian AH7771IP.

    “On the day of the murder, Vovk and Shaban were at the Tradition festival, where Dugina was present as a guest of honor. After a controlled explosion of a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado car, Vovk and her daughter left through the Pskov region to Estonia,” the FSB reported. According to the agency, he arrived in Russia in transit through Estonia on July 30, 2022 and left the country the day before the explosion in Dugina’s car. The FSB reported that “Tsyganenko provided Vovk with fake license plates and documents in the name of a real citizen of Kazakhstan, Yulia Zaiko, and, together with Vovk, assembled an improvised explosive device in a rented garage in the south-west of Moscow.” Tsyganenko entered Russia on a Ukrainian passport on July 30.

    On September 27, one of the streets of the city of Yasnogorsk in the Tula region was named after Dugina.
