Ukraine: Position Paper - Elderly in Ukraine's uncontrolled east left to fend for themselves | NRC | April 2017

More than a million citizens of Ukraine living in non-government controlled areas have been cut-off from their entitled benefits, or face a range of barriers and obstacles when seeking to obtain them. Such practice contradicts the international obligations of Ukraine and is discriminatory towards its citizens. The Government of Ukraine should urgently resume payment of pensions to all its citizens, irrespective of their place of residence.
