Natalia Vovk, aka Shaban, is said to have attached the explosive device to the Toyota SUV owned by right-wing nationalist Alexander Dugin (60) on the night of August 21. However, his daughter Darya Dugina took the car – and burned to death in the explosion, the father witnessed the assassination.
Since then, the beautiful assassin with the conspicuously sprayed lips has been on the run: At first, her trail could be traced to the Baltic States, then she was able to go into hiding. The reports of her murder had to be corrected, as did the rumors that Natalia Vovk had been seen in Vienna.
Now Russian sources are already spreading a new theory about where the Ukrainian ex-soldier and mother of two children could currently be hiding from Putin’s secret service: she could be in Dubai, is being spread on Telegram channels.
This version of the escape route could well be correct, also believe news service insiders: Natalia Vovk, alias Shaban, is said not only to have worked in the Ukrainian army in the back office, but she is also said to have worked several times as a high-class escort lady in Dubai, Warsaw and London have been active. But she allegedly did this job to gather information for the benefit of her actual clients.
This means that the assassin, who is still on the run, could be aware of possible “safe houses” in the Emirate of Dubai, which has a population of 3 million. Organizing the trip there and getting her new papers would not have been particularly difficult for a Western intelligence service.
For the Russian domestic secret service, every additional day of failure in the hunt for the bomber is bitter – after all, a Ukrainian woman was able to kill a prominent personality from the ideologically extreme right-wing camp in Russia just a few kilometers from Moscow.
