Summary

According to a United Nations report, Ukraine is cutting benefits of some 600,000 pensioners and internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Disproof

The UN humanitarian bulletin report does not say that Ukraine is cutting benefits, the report states that such reductions could be possible in the future. Ren TV also fails to mention that Ukrainian authorities had began a review of benefit fraud. Persons who are suspected of fraud could have their benefits discontinued (bit.ly/1NirUO2), .
