The spacecraft “Soyuz MS-15” at 22:42 (Moscow time) on September 25, 2019, in normal mode docked to the “Zvezda” service module of the Russian segment of the International Space Station.

The flight program provided a four-turn scheme of rapprochement between the “Soyuz” and the station.

The rapprochement was carried out automatically under the control of specialists of the Mission Control Center.

At present, the crews are preparing to open the hatches: they are monitoring the tightness of the spacecraft compartments and equalizing the pressure between the ISS and “Soyuz”, as well as taking off their spacesuits in the living compartment.
