The fire on the Liberland flagship Freedom intended for the settlement of Liberland is the largest misfortune in the short history of this nation. Luckily no one was injured and the ship has not yet been fitted with expensive technology.
The overall damage is estimated at more than 10 Bitcoins (BTC). The fire aboard the Freedom comes during the time of significant loss of our personal and economic freedoms during the global coronavirus crisis, which is an alarm for all liberty-loving people.
We are deeply grateful to the men and women of Apatin who risked their lives to save the ship. My special thanks goes to the Apatin firemen as well as the divers. We will ensure they are recognized for their brave actions. So far, we do not believe that the fire broke out spontaneously or was lit on purpose. We are awaiting the results of the investigation to confirm the details.
This event will not deter us from making further investments in the region and making sure there is proper settlement of Liberland happening in coming years. We have started a crowdfunding campaign to restore and upgrade the whole project so that people coming to Apatin and to visit Liberland will have a comfortable place to stay.
President of Liberland
