Kiev Court Arrests People’s Governor of Eastern Region for Two Months

In-depth Report:

KIEV, March 07, 20:53 /ITAR-TASS/. A district court in Kiev has issued an authorization to arrest the people’s governor of the country’s eastern Donetsk region, Pavel Gubarev, for a period of two months, a spokesman for the Security Service of Ukraine said Friday.

“A decision to choose arrest for a period of two months as a pretrial measure for Gubarev was taken by the judges Friday,” he said. “The court thus entertained a petition by the Security Service’s main department for investigation.”

Pavel Gubarev, whom a many-thousands-strong meeting of opponents of the incumbent Kiev government elected “people’s governor” of the predominantly Russian-speaking region March 1, is charged with crimes related to encroachments on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, with actions aimed at an overthrow or toppling of the constitutional system or the seizure of state power, and seizure of government and public offices.
