UN calls on Ukraine to facilitate payment of social assistance and pensions to the internally displaced persons from Donbas and Crimea.

UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons Chaloka Beyani said this at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The biggest problem is that the IDPs must be registered to be paid pensions and social benefits. These payments should be separated from registration. 500,000-600,000 IDPs in Ukraine cannot receive their payments because of this now. Winter will soon come, so these problems must be solved immediately" Beyani said.
