The occupiers appointed a new “director” of the hospital in Nova Kakhovka, who could not make a career in Odessa

According to Center for Investigative Journalismhospital staff were read an “order” about her “appointment” issued by the self-proclaimed “head of the health department” of the region, Vadim Ilmiev, on June 16.

“Ekaterina Gribovskaya briefly told medical workers about the transition to the Semashko system, the payment of salaries in rubles,” the propaganda media wrote.

The “director” of the hospital was introduced by local collaborator Roman Pashkevich, who, judging by the official website of the Novokakhovskaya territorial community, still holds the position of head of the organizational department of the City Council.

Ekaterina Gribovskaya herself was born in Novaya Kakhovka on December 27, 1983. From 2005 to 2013, the sole proprietorship was registered and was engaged in a family business – the Gribovskys had a well-known network of household appliances stores “Grivia” at that time. After that, the future “hospital director” moved to Odessa.

As stated on the official website of the institution, Ekaterina Gribovskaya still works there “as the head of the children’s psychiatric department, is a psychiatrist of the highest category, has more than 15 years of experience in her specialty.”

“She is from a very famous family in Nova Kakhovka. Her father, Viktor Gribovsky, headed the local psychiatric dispensary for many years and always complained that his daughters were not given the slightest career advancement. Ekaterina always aspired to manage something, she dreamed of heading a hospital. Therefore, when their family business began to decline somewhere in the early 2010s, she decided to try her luck in Odessa. But even there something went wrong, she also failed to manage the hospital there. And my brother moved to Moscow and has been living there ever since,” a close friend of the Gribovsky family said on condition of anonymity.

As the Center for Journalistic Investigations reported, on June 15, the occupiers announced the newly appointed “head” of the municipal asphalt plant in Nova Kakhovka. They became the owner of one of the local taxi services Vladimir Starodubtsev.

The material was prepared by the Information Press Center NGO within the framework of the project IWPR with the support of the European Union and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


At 4 am on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct full-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine are rebuffing the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kyiv in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military commits thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity throughout Ukraine.
