On April 23, 2015 ISS performed debris avoidance maneuver. The orbit was adjusted to let the station avoid Meteor-2 space device debris.

The orbit was adjusted with the help of Progress M-26M cargo vehicle thrusters.

The thrusters were ignited at 8.22, Moscow time, and were operating for 140,4 seconds, giving the station 0,3m/s velocity increment to increase the altitude.

As a result of this maneuver medium altitude of the station was increased by 550 meters, other parameters are as follows:

-          Minimum altitude 399,1 km;

-          Maximum altitude 413,7 km;

-           Orbit time 92,485 min;

-          Inclination 51,6°.
