Lutsenko said Bondar was detained under the investigation of state funds embezzlement in large amounts.
"The detainee was preparing to flee into the so-called "DPR" ["Donetsk People's Republic - ed.]," the prosecutor general wrote.
During the search of Bondar's place, the law enforcers found an engraved watch gifted to Bondar by Putin, Lutsenko said.
