Today we received a message from Russia that one of our most beloved crewmembers, Natalie Shatrova, passed away early this morning.
Natalie was at home on sick-leave, but we were all convinced we could welcome her back aboard 'Shtandart' again, cheerful and energetic as always.
She was loved by her fellow crewmembers, staff, volunteers, trainees and visitors, for just being Natalie. We will all remember her as a sweet, joyful, caring and helpful person - an angel.
We wish her family a lot of strength with this terrible loss.
Rest in peace Natalie, we will never forget you.
