Footage of the evacuated Bulgarian sailors from the Tsarevna crew was distributed in Telegram.

“We are all fine, we are evacuating and we will be home soon. Don't worry, we are all healthy, we are fine and everything is fine. Once again - don't worry,” said Tsarevna's second assistant captain Veselin Slavchev.
