A Ukrainian ship is offering an opportunity for organized evacuation of Bulgarians still remaining in war-thorn Libya, the Foreign Affairs Ministry informs Monday.

The military ship "Konstantin Olshanski" is expected to arrive in Tripoli later Monday. It has the capacity to take 500 passengers. The Ministry points out that this is considered the very last chance for Bulgarian citizens to safely leave Libya. It appeals to all those wishing to evacuate to contact the Bulgarian Embassy in Tripoli.

It is believed that about 200 Bulgarians are still in Libya with the majority of them having refused to leave during previous evacuation operations.
