Yes, I did this (but quite some time ago). Decide yourself if you think in the current times its sensible to travel to UKR and if you think yes, IF any ferries run at the mo.
By BUS there are scores of these things all the way, even coming as far as Baky/AZ (turks and azeri have much in common), you can also train it to near TR border and then bus it. At the mo there are covid related hardly any Trains running in TR-only the 2 new superfast lines. Also NO INTern. trains into BG-again a BUS (coach for british language) is best choice. The trip=fastest by bus all the way, takes near 20 hrs for Tbil-Ankara or 24/25 till Istanbul. By partly train you loose many hours for the changes and finding the way train-bus
Site seat61 has info on routes overland to/fro UK-so use it till some convenient point for the many new dedicated Gretha followers to reach Sverige.
