The bitter divisions over the Russian war in Ukraine were evident on social media.
Russian media are reporting that a car exploded in Moscow oblast; allegedly, Darya Dugina, Alexander Dugin’s daughter, was driving and that she died on the spot. No official confirmation at this point, also no information on the cause of the explosion. pic.twitter.com/7jeDuGVDjP— Russians With Attitude (@RWApodcast) August 20, 2022
An assassination attempt was made on Alexander Dugin, the architect of modern Russian fascism, in the Moscow Oblast with a car bomb. The bomb missed him barley but killed his daughter Darya Dugina, who was a fascist journalist.(Photo of Dugin in Shock Below) pic.twitter.com/XDjwOIiI2v — Dylan Burns 🇺🇦🏳️🌈 (@DylanBurns1776) August 21, 2022
I doubt the rumour that the assassination attempt was supposed to be on Alexander Dugin instead of his daughter Darya Dugina. It was her car they stuck the bomb to. Do not doubt the level of evil the enemy is capable of. They knew that this would devastate him. pic.twitter.com/dhk1XEgJ8l— Syrian Girl 🇸🇾🎗 (@Partisangirl) August 21, 2022
Initial thoughts on the apparent assassination of Darya Dugina.Considering the asymmetric nature of the war (Ukraine being outgunned by Russia), I wouldn’t be surprised if we see this: Ukrainian hybrid warfare = terrorism. — Львiв Tyler (@LvivTyler) August 20, 2022

A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman fingered Ukraine for the explosion, a claim Ukraine has publicly rejected. “If the Ukrainian trace is confirmed … then we should talk about the policy of state terrorism implemented by the Kyiv regime,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote in a Telegram post, according to CNN. “There have been plenty of facts accumulated over the years: from political calls for violence to the leadership and participation of Ukrainian state structures in crimes.” Ukraine on Sunday strenuously denied any involvement in the car explosion. “Ukraine definitely has nothing to do with this because we are not a criminal state, which the Russian Federation is, and even more so, we are not a terrorist state,” said Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the Ukrainian presidency, in a Ukrainian television interview, according to CNN. “We don’t even comment on this, because it is not an interesting topic for the Ukrainian special services,” Andrii Yusov, spokesperson for Ukraine’s chief directorate of military intelligence, said, according to The Washington Post. “I can say that the process of internal destruction of the ‘Russky Mir,’ or ‘the Russian world,’ has begun,” Yuoov said, adding that “the Russian world will eat and devour itself from the inside.” According to CNN, Darya Dugina claimed in a recent interview with the Russian news channel, 1RNK that atrocities ascribed to Russian troops during their occupation of the Ukrainian town of Bucha were American propaganda.
