MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. A Progress spacecraft that will be launched on February 17 will deliver about 20 kilograms of fresh vegetables and fruit and other food products to the International Space Station, a specialist in charge of ISS food provision told TASS on Monday.
The crew had asked for mayonnaise and mustard, he added.
"As usual, standard and additional rations and fresh fruit and vegetables — apples, oranges, grapefruit and onions will be sent with the spacecraft," Alexander Agureyev, the head of the department of the Russian medical and biological studies institute in charge of ISS food provision, told TASS.
The Russian cosmonauts will also receive American products, the delivery of which was delayed at the customs, but Roscosmos (Russian space agency) officials have settled the problem.
According to earlier reports, the delivery of American products for the Russian crewmembers was delayed at the customs because of Russia’s ban on supply of food products from some countries. There were no products for the American and European astronauts in the batch, NASA human space flight programs director Sean Fuller said.
