No water pollution was reported within a 1 mile radius around the stranded cargo ship Vera SU. This was the result of a detailed inspection of the area by a drone sent by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

As part of the measures to reduce the harmful impact on the environment, the Bulgarian side requested assistance from EMSA to provide technical means in possession of the Agency. In addition to the drone, so far EMSA had provided floating bunkers that had already started their voyage to Bulgaria. They shall be used for removing the liquefied cargo out of the ship.
