One of Russian President Vladimir Putin's closest war allies has had a suspected heart attack – just days after surviving an attempted assassination which killed his daughter.
Alexander Dugin, known as Putin's “spiritual mastermind”, is a mysterious political theorist thought to actually wield much of the Kremlin's power, using it to advance his own far-right and fascist agenda.
The Moscow State University professor has earned an even more unsettling nickname – “the world’s most dangerous philosopher” – due to his numerous controversial opinions.

Dugin harbours bizarre anti-scientific views, including a call for the ban of chemistry and physics, saying: "If we want to liberate ourselves from the West, it is needed to liberate ourselves from textbooks on physics and chemistry."
And he even wants to ban the internet – an anti-technological view stemming from his desire to hasten the "end of times" with all-out war.
But a new update from Kremlin analyst Olga Lautman, claims that Dugin suffered a heart attack – although some claim that he could have had a 'mental breakdown' following the death of his daughter in a car blast last week.
Writing on his Telegram channel, he posted: “Poor Alexander Dugin. He is in the hospital now. Our huge condolences."
And a later update said: “Update, Alexander Dugin is in the hospital under guard."

Dugin has been on the US sanctions list following Russia's takeover of Crimea for advocating the murder of Ukrainians, a philosophy that eerily aligns with the 2014 MH17 missile strike.
The originator of Kremlin-approved nationalist philosophy is a vocal supporter of Putin, and was quoted in 2007 as saying: “There are no more opponents of Putin's course and, if there are, they are mentally ill and need to be sent off for clinical examination.
“Putin is everywhere, Putin is everything, Putin is absolute, and Putin is indispensable.”

His most popular ideologies is his “Fourth Political Theory”, which would create an entirely alternative political model, set against “progress” of world history as it is.
This vision calls for a plurality of world super powers led by the Eurasian Union (former Soviet Union territory) – a theory popular with conspiracy theorists worldwide, who sense a trend towards the creation of a world government led by insincere globalist elites wishing to subjugate the people to their corporate needs.
