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.
