Arctic Convoys HMS BERWICK WW2 - Sidney Ward

Blinking heck, this 75th Commemorative Medal arrived today for Sid. Sid died on the 13th of April 2020, aged 99. Russian President Vladimir Putin contacted us regarding the medal on the 20th of Feb 2020. The medal is only awarded to the survivors of the Russian Convoys. Should we return the medal to the Russian Embassy? Or keep it and add it to all the other medals Sid was awarded?
