Russian Cosmonauts performed a spacewalk.
17:34

On June 19, 2014 Russian Cosmonauts Aleksandr Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev performed a 7 hours and 24 minutes spacewalk. The hatches were opened at 14:10 UTC.  The cosmonauts conducted extravehicular activity for installing a telemetry antenna, repositioning an experiment and jettisoning a mounting fixture after moving another experiment to a recently installed payload boom.

This was the 180th spacewalk devoted to station assembly and maintenance since construction began in 1998, the third so far this year and the first for Skvortsov and Artemyev. Total station EVA time by 116 astronauts and cosmonaut representing nine nations now stands at 1130 hours and 51 minutes.
