“The investigation believes that the crime was planned in advance and is of a contract nature,” the statement said, adding that investigators had “established that the explosive device was placed under the bottom of the car on the driver’s side.”

A murder inquiry has been launched, the statement said.

Dugina, 29, was the daughter of Alexander Dugin, a prominent proponent of the “Russian world” ideology and a vehement supporter of Russia’s sending troops into Ukraine.

Although Dugin doesn’t hold an official government position, he is believed to have influence over Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His daughter had expressed similar views and had appeared as a commentator on the nationalist TV channel Tsargrad.

“Dasha, like her father, has always been at the forefront of confrontation with the West,” Tsargrad said on Sunday, using the familiar form of her name, The Associated Press reported.

Denis Pushilin, head of the separatist Donetsk People’s Republic, blamed it on “terrorists of the Ukrainian regime, trying to kill Alexander Dugin.”

However, Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, denied on Sunday that his country was involved in the death. “We are not a criminal state,” he said on Ukrainian television.
