One more ISS crew successfully completed training on survival in marshy and forested area. For three days Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Ryazansky, NASA astronaut Randolph Bresnik and JAXA astronaut Norishige Kanai  have been accomplishing the tasks set under severe weather conditions.

According to Sergey Ryazansky who passed winter survival training for the fourth time it is much easier “to survive” under frosty conditions when the temperature outside is -25°С than during the thaw when matches and wood so necessary for the training dampen. The cosmonauts set a camp, built shelters of two kinds, practiced cooperation with search and rescue teams and coped with the off-nominal medical situation rendering to “injured” crew member.
