The Russian presidential candidate, missing since last week, has been located in neighboring Ukraine and will return to Russia Tuesday night, a campaign staffer said.

Ivan Rybkin has resurfaced in Ukraine, five days after he disappeared.
He told Russian media he was visiting friends in Kiev and "decided not to listen to the radio or TV" for a few days.
"I am entitled to two or three days of private life," he said.

"Last week I decided to take a break from the intrigue that there was about me. I left fruit and money for my wife, who is looking after our grandchildren at the moment, but did not tell her anything.

"I changed my jacket, got on a train and went to Kiev."

He said he switched off his mobile phone and went for walks.

I bet a woman and mass quantities of Vodka are involved...

If he comes back suddenly less critical, then there's a big coverup...and maybe blackmail.

It will be interesting to hear the details and to see where he stands in the political scene after this.

I personally believe this was just a PR stunt. Faking a disappearance to bring Putin into question. Right now Putin sits with a 70-80% approval. While the missing Russian has an approval rating of 1%. In other words...why bother.

An interesting tactic, but not one that is not likely to win over the trust of the Russian people. I don't think I would vote someone into power who feels they can go to the Ukraine for a couple days not watch TV or listen to the radio and not answer his cell. Not very responsible IMO.
