Yurchikhin and Misurkin conducted the excursion to prepare for the addition of a new Russian module later this year.

During the spacewalk, they replaced an aging fluid flow control panel on the station's Zarya module as preventative maintenance on the cooling system for the Russian segment of the space station. They also installed clamps for future power cables as an early step toward swapping the Pirs airlock with a new multipurpose laboratory module.

Roscosmos plans to launch a combination research facility, airlock and docking port late this year on a Proton rocket.

Yurchikhin and Misurkin also retrieved two science experiments and installed one new one.
