The operation to evacuate Bulgarian sailors from the Tsarevna ship cost Bulgaria $25,000.

According to bourgas.ru, the operation to evacuate Bulgarian sailors from the ship Tsarevna cost Bulgaria $25,000. This was stated during parliamentary control by the Minister of Finance of Bulgaria – Asen Vasilev.

The money went to the government plane that brought the sailors to Bulgaria and came from the budget of the country’s Council of Ministers.

We remind you that after they got off the ship, they were evacuated and transported to Donetsk.
On April 18, 14 Bulgarian sailors and 1 citizen of Ukraine returned to Bulgaria on a Sochi-Varna flight.
They were greeted by Prime Minister Kirill Petkov and Foreign Minister Teodora Genchovska.

Kiril Petkov stated that the entire operation was coordinated by military intelligence and General Venelin Venev could have been summoned for more detailed information, but at a closed meeting of the National Assembly.

Petkov explained that there is no danger to the lives of sailors in Mariupol, just as there is no danger to the crew of another Bulgarian ship, Rozhen, in the Ukrainian port.

“We are also in constant contact with another ship in Chernomorsk, and I really hope that soon the entire ship can be released from the port, and there, as you know, a mine clearance operation is underway,” Kiril Petkov summed up.
