MOSCOW (AA) – Russia’s security service on Monday said it has identified another suspect in the killing of Russian journalist Darya Dugina.

In a statement, Federal Security Service claimed Ukrainian national Bogdan Tsyganenko conspired with Natalya Vovk, the prime suspect.

“It has been established that the murder of Dugina was plotted in Moscow by Vovk and another member of the Ukrainian sabotage and terrorist group — a citizen of Ukraine, Bogdan Petrovich Tsyganenko, born in 1978, who arrived in Russia in transit through Estonia on July 30, 2022 and left the territory of Russia the day before Dugina’s bombing,” the FSB said.

According to the intelligence service, Tsyganenko provided Vovk with fake car license plates and documents in the name of a real citizen of Kazakhstan, Yulia Zaiko.

In addition, he carried out together with Vovk the assembly of an improvised explosive device in a rented garage southwest of Moscow.

The intelligence service held Ukrainian authorities responsible for the killing of the 29-year-old Russian journalist. Ukraine denies the allegations.

Dugina was killed in a car explosion on the outskirts of Moscow on Aug. 20.

She was the daughter of Russian sociologist and philosopher Aleksandr Dugin, who heads the International Eurasian Movement, a political movement that opposes American values like liberalism and capitalism, and is known as an ally of President Vladimir Putin.
