Recently, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in Indonesia to attend the G-20 conference. But after reaching the country, he was taken to the hospital. This is what the news agency AP said in a report on Monday.

According to the Reuters report, Russia has dismissed this AP news as a rumor.

Lavrov is being treated for a heart condition, the AP reported, citing several sources. However, the Russian Foreign Ministry said the report is baseless.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, ‘This is definitely a sign of fraud.’

Indonesian officials did not respond to Reuters requests for comment.

Lavrov arrived in Bali on Sunday to represent Russian President Vladimir Putin at the summit.
