Progress MS-22 cargo spacecraft has been delivered to the processing facility at the Baikonur Cosmodrome to undergo its standard processing according to the Russian Segment of the International Space Station transportation support schedule.

Over the last three months, Progress MS-22 had undergone the full scope of in-factory check tests at RSC Energia and on March 1, 2022, was shipped by rail to the launch site. At the integration and test facility of Site 254, the spacecraft was unloaded and installed into its processing station to undergo the acceptance procedure and further deactivation. After that, as a part of the incoming inspection operations, specialists from RSC Energia performed visual inspection of the spacecraft and checked the functioning of the solar array panels deployment mechanism. Progress MS-22 will remain in storage until the start of the immediate prelaunch processing.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle carrying Progress MS-22 under the program of the 83rd resupply mission to the ISS is scheduled for February 2023.
