Ukraine ridicules Moscow murder accusation


Ukrainian officials are adamant their security services had nothing to do with the car-bomb attack that killed Darya Dugina, the daughter of ultranationalist thinker Alexander Dugin, in Moscow on Saturday. The accusation comes from Russia’s FSB, who have identified the killer as a Ukrainian woman who rented a flat in Ms Dugina’s building last month.

Hundreds of people have attended a memorial service for Ms Dugina, who became a pro-war commentator on Russian TV. The victim’s father told mourners she had “died for Russia” and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said there can be no mercy for her killers.

But Ukraine’s authorities says she doesn’t work for them, and defence ministry adviser Yuriy Sak says the attack was probably a Russian “false flag” operation made to blame Kyiv.

“We don’t work this way; we have more important tasks for our boys and girls,” says the head of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, Oleksiy Danilov.

He’s accused Moscow of organising a string of mass-casualty attacks inside Russia to mobilise flagging support for its war, which began six months ago tomorrow.
