“My wife has been missing since 16.30 yesterday. She was last seen in the building of the Kherson regional government in Henichesk. I tried calling Saldo [head of the occupation government], no result so far,” Gubarev wrote.
Yekaterina Gubareva was detained on financial crime charges, Russia Today cites its source. Her status is currently unknown.
Gubareva has worked as a “Foreign Minister of DPR”, an MP and “assistant to the head of DPR government” since 2014. She was appointed deputy head of the occupation government in the Kherson region on 16 June 2022.
Gubarev’s husband reported her missing in 2018. She was found on the same day.
