Russian cosmonauts performed EVA.

On December 11, 2018, Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Sergey Prokopyev performed the extra vehicle activities (EVA – spacewalk). The cosmonauts cut into multi-layer insulation and debris shielding to inspect the “Soyuz MS-09” spacecraft’s metallic hull, where Prokopyev and German astronaut Alexander Gerst had plugged a 2-millimeter hole that caused a minor air leak in August. The spacewalkers first cut into the thermal blankets, then sliced into shielding designed to protect the ship from micrometeoroid and orbital debris impacts.
