Current development of the geopolitical confrontation between particular subjects for their spheres of influence has led to formation of the unrecognized states in Eastern Europe. We are focusing on Eastern Ukrainian conflict where Russian-supported so called Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics are combating the national armed forces of the central Ukrainian authorities and where water and migration becomes the challenge not for domestic stakeholder only but for international community as well. Authors are investigating the water scarcity and migration issues in the area of recent conflict.
