The changes in the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and the Water Index (WI) by Landsat images (April 24 and August 30, 2011; April 5 and August 11, 2016) have been analyzed to detect the winter wheat areas for 2011 and 2016 within the Donechchyna. It is found that the winter crop area in 2016 is 5 times less than in 2011. The economic losses of the Donetsk region are assessed.
