In particular, problems arose again with the Electron-VM oxygen production system, which was mounted in the Zvezda module. Last week, this complex already experienced a failure, and it took several days for the Russian crew of the station to restore its operability.

In addition, it is reported that there was a malfunction of the toilet in the Zvezda module: the astronauts reported on the indication “Poor quality preservative.” Plus, the smoke of the vacuum cleaner was recorded.

However, the Russian cosmonauts were able to quickly cope with all the problems. For example, the oxygen generation system has already been re-restored – the failure is associated with the docking of cables in another part of the Zvezda module. The toilet has also been resumed – this problem is explained by the presence of an air bubble in the system.

Still, it should be noted that failures in the Zvezda module are recorded quite often. Moreover, it is here that there is a crack, due to which air leaks on the ISS. Recently, the gap was repaired with a temporary patch.
