UN urges Ukraine to pay pensions to Donbass

The UN called on Kiev to pay pensions to the residents of Donbass, reported Assistant High Commissioner for Operations of the United Nations Agency for Refugees (UNHCR) George Okoth-Obbo.

"These people are traumatized twice. Firstly, by the experience of the ongoing conflict and secondly by the complex requirements and procedures which make it very difficult for people to receive their legitimate pensions and social security payments or even at risk of losing them," George Okoth-Obbo stressed.
