Residents of Ukraine's Donetsk took to the streets demanding "people's governor" Pavel Gubarev should be released from jail.

Gubarev was arrested two days ago in Donetsk and sent to Kiev, where he was put under arrest. "The people's governor" faces charges of violation of territorial integrity of Ukraine, although his lawyers note that he only shared his opinion about the future of the region.

"We all understand that there is clearly a political aspect in this case. The legal aspect is, unfortunately, a lot smaller than the political one," said Gubarev's lawyer Alexander Groshinsky said.

A criminal case was filed against Gubarev on three counts: attempted take-over, violation of foreign territorial supremacy of Ukraine and seizure of administrative buildings.

Ukrainian entrepreneur Pavel Gubarev is the head of the pro-Russian movement "People's Militia of Donbass." During the meeting, which took place in Donetsk on March 1, Gubarev was declared the "people's governor" of the region. He then offered to hold a referendum about the status of the region.
