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.
