This was announced by MP Rasa Juknevičienė during a parliamentary sitting on Thursday.

Vytautas Landsbergis is a former leader of the conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats. He came to prominence during the Sąjūdis movement in the late 1980s and was one of the leaders of Lithuania’s efforts to achieve independence from the Soviet Union. Landsbergis was also the first head of state after Lithuania seceded from the USSR in 1990.

Juknevičienė, who is a member of the Homeland Union, told BNS that Landbergis was admitted to hospital on Monday. She refused to elaborate on his health condition.
