“You can’t paint eggs because they are not there. The eggs at the station are only in the form of an omelet. It is impossible to cook Easter cake, there is no such stove. It (Easter cake – Ed.) Can only be delivered from Earth by a cargo ship, if the crew asked, or the cosmonauts could bring it with them. And you can eat cottage cheese Easter – you can eat cottage cheese with raisins, ”said the astronaut.

At the same time, Shkaplerov said that the preparation of a special menu for Easter depends on the wishes of the crew.
