ALEXANDER Dugin has attended the funeral of his daughter, who was killed by a car bomb widely believed to have been aimed at him.
The man dubbed Vladimir Putin’s guru was seen for the first time since the attack as he joined mourners at Darya Dugina’s funeral -after he vowed revenge for the blast that killed the 30-year-old.

The man also described as “Putin’s brain” reportedly suffered a heart attack following Saturday evening’s bomb attack.
The Neo-Nazi mystic narrowly escaped the fatal blast after switching cars at the last.
Russia has bizarrely placed the blame on a female Ukrainian assassin who it claims snuck into Moscow with her 12-year-old daughter.
At the funeral, Dugin, 50, and Darya’s mother Natalia Melentyeva, 64, sat beside the open coffin.
“She died for Russia, on the front line,” he said.
“This front line is here, in every one of us. She lived for victory, and died in the name of victory.”
He said her last words to him before getting into her Toyota Land Cruiser were: “Papa, I feel like a warrior, I feel like a hero.”
In a message ahead of the funeral, Putin said: “A vile, cruel crime ended the life of Daria Dugina, a bright, talented person with a real Russian heart – kind, loving, sympathetic and open.”
An ardent supporter of the war, Dugin has accused Putin of failing to use his full firepower to crush Ukraine and challenge the West.
In his first statement since the attack, Dugin denounced what he called the “terrorist attack carried out by the Nazi Ukrainian regime”.
“But they will not succeed. Our hearts yearn for more than just revenge or retribution,” he said.
“It’s too petty, it’s not Russian style. We need only our victory. My daughter laid her life on its altar – so please win.”
Video taken immediately after the bombing shows Dugin with his hands to his head in shock as he stares at the burning wreck of the car.
Rogue elements within the Russian security services and resistance fighters who want to overthrow the regime are among the suspects.
Other experts raised the possibility that Putin himself may have ordered the hit on Dugin after facing criticism from his adviser for not going far enough in Ukraine.
Dugina, a Russian journalist, had reported from Ukraine since the start of the war for pro-Russian media, including from the Azovstal steel works in Mariupol.
She was sanctioned last month by the British Government as “a frequent and high-profile contributor of disinformation in relation to Ukraine.”
No group has claimed responsibility for Saturday evening’s bombing on a highway in southwest Moscow.
