They installed and connected the Obstanovka plasma wave experiment, a Russian investigation into space weather in Earth’s upper atmosphere. This task includes the planned jettison of two probe containers and a cable reel. They then removed a container from the Russian experiment Biorisk, which looks at the effects of microbial bacteria and fungus on structural materials used in spacecraft construction.

Russia and the U.S. define EVA differently. Russian cosmonauts are said to perform EVA any time they are in vacuum in a space suit. A U.S. astronaut must have at least his head outside his spacecraft before he is said to perform an EVA.
In this table, we apply the Russian definition to Russian EVAs, and the U.S. definition to U.S.EVAs.
