    The Progress MS-07 has finally reached ISS to deliver a special present for the cosmonauts: a hand-painted spacesuit.

    KOROLYOV (Moscow region) (Sputnik) — The Progress MS-07 cargo spacecraft docked to the ISS in an automatic mode on Monday, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the Mission Control Center.

    The Progress MS-07 was launched on Saturday in a second attempt on the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket.

    The spacecraft delivered fuel, food, water, parcels to the crew from relatives and friends, as well as other cargoes.

    Also, Russian and American cancer patients have made a special present for the cosmonauts: a hand-painted spacesuit, named Victory.

    The cancer patients have decorated the spacesuit as a part of the Space Suit Art Project, supported by Russia's state space corporation Roscosmos, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and other international space agencies.
