Yesterday on August 12, at 17.30, Moscow time, European cargo space vehicle ATV-5 (Georges Lemaître) docked with Russian service module Zvezda.

Station reboost maneuver was scheduled for August 14, 20:58, Moscow time.

ISS orbit will be adjusted to provide better conditions for the undocking and landing of Soyuz TMA-12M manned spacecraft with Roscosmos cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov, Oleg Artemyev and NASA astronaut Steven Swanson onboard. The landing is planned for September 11.

Orbit adjustment  will be accomplished by European cargo vehicle ATV-5 thrusters.
