Yesterday, in accordance with the training schedule, cosmonauts and astronauts arrived at the assembly and test building of the 254th spaceport site for the first training session (“fitting”) in the “Soyuz MS-11″ spacecraft.

During the pre-launch training, the crews underwent general training on safety measures and checked their suits for tightness.
