Mr Rybkin has slipped into the liner unnoticed, says one of our interviewees.
Rumours have gathered news-thirsty reporters of all major Russian and Ukrainian television companies and other media outlets at Borispol, what with the presidential hopeful's sensational disappearance of a few preceding days.
Police officers will meet the candidate at the Moscow airport, the city police board transparently hinted. A search is going on, says Kirill Mazurin, city board chief of PR.
Ivan Rybkin's anguished wife reported him missing, Thursday last. The police started search, Sunday, and cannot stop it right now on formal reasons, explains Mr Mazurin. It takes the missing person's reappearance or his relations' formal application to close a search. Meanwhile, none of people close to Rybkin has contacted the police on the matter, as far as the PR boss knows.
