    Russia's Progress MS-06 cargo spacecraft, launched on June 14 with the help of a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket, has docked with the Zvezda module of the International Space Station's (ISS) Russian segment, a Sputnik correspondent reported Friday from the Mission Control Center in the Moscow region.

    KOROLYOV (Sputnik) — The docking took place in an automatic mode.

    The Progress resupply ship was launched on Wednesday. It is carrying fuel, water, food, compressed gases, medical and sanitary equipment, as well as nanosatellites to Russia's Zvezda service module.

    The Progress MS-06 (NASA: Progress 67) is used by the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, to resupply the ISS.
