MOSCOW, September 9. /ITAR-TASS/. A space crew - Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov, Oleg Artyomyev and NASA astronaut Steven Swanson, have been guaranteed safe welcome on Earth when they return from the ISS back to the Earth in a descending apparatus of the Soyuz-TMA-12M spaceship on September 11.
"Around 200 army servicemen, fourteen helicopters Mi-8, three planes AN-13 and AN-26 and six cross-country vehicles will ensure safety of the space crew when the landing apparatus touches down 148 kilometers south-east of Zheskazgan (Kazakhstan) scheduled for 6.25am Moscow time on September 11," assistant troops commander of the Central Military District Colonel Yaroslav Roschupkin told ITAR-TASS.
"Aviation forces, search and rescue facilities of the Central Military District have arrived to the assigned area where the descending apparatus is to touch down. Emergency rescue groups on board cross-country vehicles and helicopters with a special equipment on board have been deployed in the main and reserve areas of landing," Colonel Roschupkin said.
