The daughter of Putin ally Alexander Dugin was killed by Ukrainian special services, according to Russia, after an investigation was carried out by the FSB.
Darya Dugina, 29, was killed on Saturday when the Toyota Land Cruiser she was driving exploded in Moscow.
The intended target may have been her father, Alexander Dugin, a renowned ultra-nationalist who is believed to be close to the Russian president.
Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia has now said that the case has been solved and that Ukraine is directly responsible.
Officials from Ukraine have already ruled out their participation in the explosion.

However, the FSB says in a statement that the Ukrainian special services employed a contractor who arrived in Russia in the middle of July with her young daughter.
She allegedly rented an apartment in Ms. Dugina’s building to get to know her better. Additionally, according to the security organization, the suspects drove a Mini Cooper with three different sets of license plates.
After the explosion, the contractor fled to Estonia, according to the FSB.
