Who is Alexander Dugin?
Aleksandr Guelievich Dugin, a 60-year-old Muscovite, is the political scientist and polemicist who has become the wide-eyed prophet predicting Russia’s dominance of Europe through Ukraine.

The son of a KGB officer, he grew up in the Soviet Union, who hated adopted fascism as a form of rebellion. Together with Eduard Limonov, he founded the National Bolshevik Party—half punk, half fascist despite the name—and they blew up the election, as EL ESPAÑOL’s portfolio says Gonzalo Uguidos.
Magazine foreign Affairshe calls him “Putin’s brain” and has sometimes boasted himself that the Russian president has taken his muses to the theater and turned his theories into history.
Now, Dugin is not exactly an adviser to Putin, much less his leading guru or philosopher. Although he worked as an adviser to the Speaker of the State Duma Sergei Naryshkin – a key member of the ruling United Russia party, who is now the head of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) and strongly supports Russian intervention in Ukraine.
In any case, If there is a pattern in Putin’s foreign policy so far, it is very similar to what Dugin suggests. In fact, before its hybrid war against Ukraine, the Kremlin infiltrated activists close to Dugin in the neighboring country.
