Lukashenka spills the beans about Putin

The Belarusian ruler said about Putin's injure in his interview with Reuters. The Kremlin does not know how to react.

Alyaksandr Lukashenka, an ice hockey amateur, cannot play with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin because the latter damaged his spine. He said it to answer the question if he played hockey with Putin, who likes sports and cultivates a tough-guy image, AFN news agency reports.

"He tells me: 'We are not prepared yet to take on your team.' He has damaged his spine somewhere. In a judo match. He was on the mat and hurt his spine. I know he has this problem. He loves judo. He lifted a guy, threw him, and twisted his spine, Lukashenka said.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on Lukashenka's remark.

Talks that Putin, 60, has health problems appeared in autumn: the president was seen walking with a limp during the APEC summit in Vladivostok. He was also seen in public leaning forward while sitting. In October, Putin cancelled his visit to Pakistan for a four-nation summit on Afghanistan and didn't visit Turkey. Three sources in the Russian government told Reuters Putin has a back problem, but the Kremlin refutes this information.
