From 2008–2009, Kulbach competed with Anna Khnychenkova for Ukraine.

From 2010–2011, Kulbach competed for Estonia with Natalja Zabijako. Zabijako injured her back as a result of a fall at the NRW Trophy in December 2011, preventing them from competing at the 2012 European Championships.[1] On 15 February 2012, it was reported that Zabijako and Kulbach had parted ways and he had returned to Ukraine.[1]

In 2012, Kulbach teamed up with Elizaveta Usmantseva to compete for Ukraine but their partnership was short-lived.[2]
