State of the Siverskyi Donets Basin and Related Risks under Military Operations (Technical Report)

The overview of OSCE expert materials concerns the state, use and protection of surface- and ground-waters in the Siverskyi Donets river basin. The main river of Ukraine’s heavily industrialised Donbas, together with its tributaries and ground waters, has for a long time suffered from heavy pollution. The additional risks from recent and ongoing hostilities are in particular related to possible failures at operational industrial sites, public utilities and the gradually and increasingly flooded coal mines.
