Russia’s envoy to the organization says Moscow car bombing shows Ukraine’s true nature
The UN calls for “an investigation to establish the facts” behind the violent death of Russian journalist Darya Dugina, Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for Secretary General Antonio Guterres, told reporters on Monday.
The car bomb attack that killed Dugina shows the true nature of the Ukrainian state and the UN Security Council will be informed about it at a future meeting, added the permanent representative of Russia to the organization, Vassily Nebenzia.
“We have requested an urgent meeting tomorrow on Zaporozhye, where Ukrainian provocations continue,” Nebenzia told TASS, adding that he would bring up Saturday’s Moscow car bombing in this context.
The attack “clearly demonstrates the nature of the Ukrainian state”, added the ambassador. “The connection between their saboteurs and this murder is obvious, and has already been revealed by the FSB.”
Dugina, 29, was the daughter of philosopher Aleksandr Dugin. They attended a festival outside Moscow on Saturday. She was killed in the explosion of a bomb planted in her father’s Toyota SUV. A source in Russia’s security services told TASS on Monday that Dugina herself was the intended target and that the bomb detonated remotely once the killer knew she was driving.
