Russian FSB claims it prevented an assassination attempt on Konstantin Malofeev.

The founder of the Russian Orthodox TV network Tsargrad, Konstantin Malofeev, was the target of an assassination attempt, according to the Russian FSB, which announced its success on Monday. The organization asserted that neo-Nazi Denis Kapustin attempted to blow up Malofeev's car, but was unsuccessful. Kapustin's anti-Putin Russian Volunteer Corps claimed responsibility for last week's incursion into Russia's Bryansk region from Ukraine. 

The FSB claims that Kapustin was acting on behalf of the Ukrainian Security Service and intended to commit a murder akin to that of Daria Dugina, the public figure and daughter of Eurasianist philosopher Alexander Dugin whose car exploded in August. 

The organization also published a video that reportedly depicts the bombing of Malofeev's automobile and its subsequent demining. 

Konstantin Malofeev claimed that no one was hurt during the supposed assassination attempt after the FSB's statement was made public. A criminal investigation into the incident has apparently been initiated by the Russian authorities.
