Putin signed a decree on the posthumous awarding of Darya Dugina with the Order of Courage

On Monday, August 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on awarding the Order of Courage to Daria Dugina. This was reported on the official website of the Kremlin.

The text of the decree reads: “For courage and dedication shown in the performance of professional duty, to award the Order of Courage to Daria Alexandrovna Dugin, a correspondent for the non-public joint-stock company Tsargrad Media, Moscow (posthumously)”.

Earlier, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation announced the disclosure of the murder of Daria Dugina, the daughter of public figure Alexander Dugin, accusing the Ukrainian special services of the crime. The name of the “performer” was also named: “Citizen of Ukraine Vovk Natalya Pavlovna, born in 1979, who arrived in Russia on July 23, 2022, together with her daughter Shaban Sofia Mikhailovna, born in 2010.”

The FSB also noted that Natalya Vovk, together with her daughter, managed to leave the territory of the Russian Federation, having left through the Pskov region to Estonia.

On Saturday evening, August 20, near the village of Bolshiye Vyazemy (southwest of the Moscow Region), 29-year-old Daria Dugina (Platonova), the daughter of a public figure, the ideologist of “Eurasianism” Alexander Dugin, died as a result of an explosion of a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado car.

Alexander Dugin and Daria Dugina were on the territory of the Manor in Zakharovo on August 20 at the literary and musical festival “Tradition” as guests of honor. In the evening they left the festival in different cars. Shortly thereafter, the car in which Daria was located exploded.

Daria Dugina graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University in 2015. She was a political commentator for the International Eurasian Movement, which is led by her father. The United Kingdom and the United States have imposed sanctions against it.

Alexander Dugin, a supporter of Eurasianism and Russia’s integration with the post-Soviet republics, is considered one of the ideologists of Vladimir Putin’s regime. It has been on the US, EU and Canadian sanctions lists since the mid-2010s.

The head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, said that “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime” were involved in the assassination attempt, and Dugin was their target. However, much indicates that it was Daria Dugina who was the target.

Leading Russian propagandists blamed Kyiv for the murder and demanded retribution for Ukraine.

Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said that Ukraine was not involved in the death of Alexander Dugin’s daughter. “I emphasize that Ukraine, of course, has nothing to do with this, because we are not a criminal state, which is the Russian Federation, and even less a terrorist state,” Podolyak said.
