Operations to lift sunken Bulgaria cruise ship will be slightly shifted as one of the lift ropes broke, Timur Khikmatov, head of the Russian Transport Ministry's Press-Service, said on Sunday.

"The timeline will be shifted, but slightly," Khikmatov said.

According to Khikmatov, the new rope will be fixed already today, after the divers finish examining the bottom.

Two-decked Bulgaria, built in 1955, sank on July 10 at 13:58 Moscow time (09:58 GMT) near the village of Syukeyevo in the Kansko-Ustinovsky district of the Republic of Tatarstan.

The cruise ship Bulgaria was carrying 185 people, 65 more than the maximum 120 allowed by technical regulations for this type of the vessel.
