On August 26, the “Soyuz MS-13” spacecraft was successfully redocked from the “Zvezda” service module to the “Poisk” small research module of the Russian segment of the International Space Station.

All operations were performed by commander, Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov using a manual control system.
