German Chancellor Angela Merkel received Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in Berlin on Tuesday, to reportedly discuss the Minsk accords and reforms in eastern Ukraine.

Footage shows Merkel visibly shaking while the military band played the national anthems for both leaders, before they both left to attend a press conference.

Merkel attributed to dehydration the cause of her unsteadiness, speaking at the conference afterwards, saying "since then I have drunk at least three glasses of water - I obviously needed that and so I'm doing very well now."
