"Since there is nothing to eat at the base these days, the quality of food and its variety in general has dropped dramatically during the Covid period, I have to survive on vegetables, although I doubt that boiled cabbage is enough for my muscles to recover. Sad, sad, bring back the old days. And a quarter of a grapefruit to boot. Of course, it all looks more than a little funny. But yes. It is what it is," Melnikova explained.
