  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy listen national anthems at the Chancellery in Berlin Germany

German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared unsteady and unwell as she met with Volodymyr Zelenskiy in Berlin, her whole body visibly shaking as she received the new Ukrainian president at the chancellery.

Merkel looked as if she were struggling to stand up while she and Zelenskiy listened to national anthems during military honours upon his arrival.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel dismissed concerns about her health after visibly trembling at an official ceremony, saying she was just a bit dehydrated in the heat. Berlin is now going through heatwave temperatures, and the heat at the time was approaching 30 degrees.

At the subsequent joint news conference an hour later, Angela Merkel sought to redirect attention to her talks with the Ukrainian President, which dwelt on a number of bilateral issues and the Minsk peace process.

Merkel had walked quickly inside with Zelenskiy after the anthems, pausing to greet the military band and take a salute.

Her spokesman Steffen Seibert explained at the time the leader did not feel well for a moment, then ate and drank something and continued the interview.

German privacy laws are very strict on health information and it is not publicly known if Merkel, who has led Germany since 2005, has any physical problems.
