MOSCOW, January 15 /TASS/. Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko has conducted more than 50 experiments at the International Space Station (ISS) under the Russian scientific program.

"All of us, including Kjell Lindgren, Kimiya Yui and myself, have certainly implemented our research programmes. I conducted 51 experiments and held 368 scientific sessions during my flight," Kononenko told a news conference at the Cosmonaut Training Centre on Friday.

He said he had spent almost 41% of his time on repairing, restoring and fitting up the station’s system; scientific work accounted for about 38% of his time.

Kononenko participated in the Kontur-2 space experiment, the first robotic experiment onboard the ISS. It purpose was to test remote control procedures of on-planet robots from orbit. "About a dozen remote control sessions were held," Kononenko clarified.

The space crew, comprising Kononenko, Kjell Lindgren (USA) and Kimiya Yui (Japan), worked onboard the ISS from late July to early December 2015.
