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.
