"The correction was carried out with an engine of the Zvezda service module. The maneuver of increasing the orbital height started at 6:22 a.m. Moscow time (03:22 GMT), lasted 96 seconds and was successfully completed. As a result the ISS medium orbital height was increased by about 2.45 kilometers and now amounts to 406.1 kilometers," a spokesperson of the Russian Mission Control Center told RIA Novosti.
The maneuver was carried out as part of preparations for docking the Soyuz MS-03 manned spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS). The Soyuz MS-03 is going to be launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on November 17.
