Moscow/IBNS: Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko was rushed to a hospital in Moscow after meeting his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, American weekly news magazine Newsweek reported citing the Belarusian opposition leader.

According to reports, Lukashenko was in critical condition when he was brought to the Central Clinical Hospital of Moscow.

In a Telegram post, Belarus 2020 presidential candidate Valery Tsepkalo said that the information his team obtained required further information.

"According to the information we have, which requires additional confirmation, Lukashenko after a meeting with Putin behind closed doors, was urgently taken to the Central Clinical Hospital of Moscow, where he is currently staying," the Telegram post as reported by Newsweek.

"The best specialists were sent to return him (Lukashenko) from a condition assessed by doctors as critical," he added.

Tsepkalo's message on Telegram further said, "The organized measures to rescue the Belarusian dictator were aimed at averting speculation about the possible involvement of the Kremlin in his poisoning." He said that doctors have warned of a possible recurrence of relapses, as per the news report.

According to Newsweek, rumours about Lukashenko's health have been doing the rounds after his appearance at the Victory Day celebration in Moscow's Red Square on May 9.

However, Lukashenko, who has led Belarus since 1994, dismissed the rumours and said, "I'm not going to die guys."
