Earlie MCC representative reported that medium altitude of the ISS was to be increased by about 2 km on January 16 .

ISS reboost maneuver was to take place on January 16 to create optimal conditions for Progress M-22M cargo vehicle launched from Baikonur on February 5 docking with the ISS. The docking is scheduled for February 6.

The maneuver was necessary to create optimal ballistic conditions for Progress M-22M cargo vehicle docking with the ISS. Progress M-22M launch will take place from Baikonur spaceport at 20.23 Moscow time on February 5. The docking is scheduled for February 6, 02.24 Moscow time.
