    "In the list of orders – black, sturgeon’s roe [caviar]. Besides freeze-dried products, we will deliver apples, lemons, oranges, tomatoes, condensed milk as usual. One of the cosmonauts asked for tea without sugar, which will also be delivered," Agureyev said.

    Earlier in the day, the cosmonauts' nutrition chief also stated that US food supplies at the ISS are sufficient, so no food problems for the space crew are expected.
