The state TV channel Belarus 1 showed Lukashenka joking at the rumours about his health problems on the evening of August 1. The rumours were nothing but idle talk, Lukashenka’s press secretary Natallya Eismant said as the president met with head of Minsk Region Isachenka on July 31 and visited the fields of Minsk Region the next day.

He addressed one of the agricultural managers in the field: “You will report it to me next year. Will you live until then? Don’t make promises you can’t keep. I was buried yesterday and you may be buried too.”

“Do not worry, I am alive,” the Belarusian leader told the hournalist from TV and radio company Mir who humbly asked about his health.

He also laughed when he was told about his double.
