The Associated Press reports that Roscosmos general director Vladimir Popovkin has been hospitalized.
Roscosmos spokesman Alexei Kuznetsov on Sunday confirmed the hospitalization but would not elaborate.

Russian news agencies earlier quoted Roscosmos press office as saying that Popovkin had been taken to hospital with "physical and emotional exhaustion."

The 54-year-old Popovkin had been leading the Russian space agency since April.
