The S.P. Korolev manned spacecraft (Soyuz MS-21) carrying the crew of the ISS-67 Expedition to the International Space Station docked to Node Module Prichal of the ISS Russian Segment at 22:12:06 Moscow time. This was the first spacecraft docking to the new Russian module.

The rendezvous was performed using a two-orbit profile under supervision of specialists from the Lead Operational Control Team for the ISS Russian Segment (S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, which is a part of the State Corporation Roscosmos). The crew performed operations required to open the transfer hatches: running leakage checks on the spacecraft modules, switching to joint power supply, equalizing pressure between the spacecraft and the station, as well as doffing and drying pressure suits Sokol KV-2.

Upon completion of the leakage check of the joint between the spacecraft and Node Module Prichal, the hatches were open. After which, the newly arrived crew consisting of three Roscosmos cosmonauts Оleg Аrtemiev, Denis Мatveev and Sergei Korsakov transferred to the ISS.

About 150 kg of cargo including sanitary and hygiene products and materials of the biomedical experiment under the Russian program, flight-data files, and consumables of onboard life-limited hardware, articles of clothing, personal items of cosmonauts, as well as selections of fresh produce and standard food rations were also delivered to the International Space Station.
