Condolences to Alexander Dugin and Natalia Melentyeva

August 22, 2022

Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences to Alexander Dugin and Natalia Melentyeva on the death of their daughter Darya Dugina.

The message reads, in part:

“A vile, cruel crime cut short the life of Darya Dugina, a bright, talented person with a true Russian heart, kind, loving, sympathetic and open. Journalist, scientist, philosopher, and war correspondent, she honestly served the people and the Fatherland, and proved by deed what it means to be a patriot of Russia.”
