Ukrainians fleeing the war will be resettled on two ships docked in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The cruise liners MS Ambition and MS Victoria will be used for the temporary resettlement of Ukrainian refugees. MS Ambition will be based in the port of the Scottish city of Glasgow and MS Victoria in the Scottish capital Edinburgh. This was reported by the BBC.
The liner MS Ambition will be able to accommodate 1,750 people in 714 cabins, it said. The ship will be anchored for six months, so settlers can leave at any time.
It should be noted that Scotland pledged to accept three thousand refugees from Ukraine at the start of the war. However, so far the number has exceeded 15 thousand people.
In late July, Scotland started to accommodate Ukrainian refugees on the cruise ship MS Victoria, which moored near Edinburgh.
