    As the Ukrainian president was speaking at a ceremony commemorating the fallen soldiers of the country's National Guard, a flag bearer behind him kneeled and dropped the President's banner.

    The video shows the soldier, who apparently wasn't feeling well, sinking to one knee and dropping the Presidential banner.

    A member of the National Guard immediately took over the post while the fallen guard was attended to and taken away.

    The incident is not the first of its kind: in July 2016, the country's border patrol head Victor Nazarenko passed out during a speech by Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko.
