What it’s about: The article reiterates a Twitter post by Venezuela’s Habitat and Housing Minister Ildemaro Villarroel claiming UN Habitat recognized Venezuela as the leading country in housing rights. The comment was made during the first UN-Habitat Assembly taking place in Nairobi, Kenya.
Why it’s false: The article is false because it is taking Villarroel’s comment as fact. UN Habitat has not publicly recognized Venezuela as the official leader in housing rights. Once again, Sputnik is using comments made by biased sources as facts, and in this case, making it seem as though the UN awarded Venezuela with this honor to help improve the image of the Maduro government.
