Ukrainian spy service, the SBU, reportedly planned and executed the assassination of Darya Dugina, the daughter of Russian ideologue Alexander Dugin, using bomb parts concealed inside a cat carrier, according to The Washington Post.
Dugina, a 29-year-old advocate for the invasion of Ukraine, was killed in a car bombing in the outskirts of Moscow in August 2022. The SBU allegedly smuggled the bomb parts into Russia from Estonia, hidden in a cat carrier with a secret compartment. The operation involved surveillance of Dugina by a woman who had entered Russia with her 12-year-old daughter. Russian officials have previously accused Ukrainian spies of being behind the attack, a claim denied by Kyiv.
The report also revealed that the SBU has been involved in a series of assassinations, causing concern among officials in Washington and Kyiv. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has denied involvement in these killings.
