n the meantime, the spacewalkers are traversing back the Russian ISS Segment, on their way to Nauka to meet the airlock riding the European Robotic Arm at its docking site:
To boldly go where no human has gone before !

RS EVA-57 (PET: 3:10; EDT: 7:10pm): After cleaning up the Rassvet worksite, Prokopyev and Petelin are headed back to the Poisk module to retrieve a cable need to connect the experiment airlock to Nauka; also stowing a bundle of no-longer-needed gear that will be jettisoned later

The spacewalkers now reached Nauka, right behind the airlock being moved by ERA arm:

The #EuropeanRoboticArm is 11 metres long and it can manoeuvre modules up to 8000 kg with an accuracy of 5 millimetres. 🦾🤩

Airlock is almost there, as the station moves into an orbital sunrise.

A view from a camera on Nauka looking out of the docking port at the target on the airlock, which Fedyaev will use to fine-tune his positioning with the ERA.

Online Yellowstone10

Getting very close indeed now...

Online Yellowstone10

Hmm. That's not quite right. (And having the rigid ERA extender, rather than a movable wrist right at the airlock, probably doesn't make things any easier.)

Online Yellowstone10

New plan: they're going to put the ERA into flexible mode and have the two spacewalkers manually shift the airlock so the docking surfaces are parallel.

Online Yellowstone10

That seems to have done the trick - hooks are driving as we hit 5 hours elapsed time on the EVA.

Now working on making the necessary electrical connections between Nauka and the airlock - one minor wrinkle, as they discovered that some of the caps had been taped in place.

(Edit - apparently a slightly bigger wrinkle, as they've had to break out the Space Knife. Looks to be a bit less stabby than the one used on the Soyuz MS-09 investigatory EVA.)

Prokopiev connects cables to the patch panel on the airlock side, a total of 6:

Getting into position on Poisk to jettison the trash bundle.

Online Yellowstone10

There goes the bundle! Jettison occurred at 0240 UTC stream time - presumably a minute or so before that, accounting for lag.

Working on tool inventory before proceeding into the Poisk airlock.

Edit - anyone know enough Russian to translate the flag and the caption on that picture on the toolkit?

EV hatch on Poisk is closed. Spacewalk is over at 0311 UTC stream time.

Duration: 7 hours 10 minutes 28 seconds, per translator.

Victory Europe Day which occurred during the Spacewalk. The military units below forced the German Surrender.
The Cyrillic inscription reads: 150th Rifle, Order of Kutuzov 2nd class, Idritsa Division, 79th Rifle Corps, 3rd Shock Army, 1st Belorussian Front.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_Banner_(Soviet_Union)#:~:text=It%20is%20also%20one%20of,Shock%20Army%2C%201st%20Belorussian%20Front.

It is also shown for propaganda reasons by the Russian Side in the Russian-Belorussian versus Ukrainian geopolitical military conflict as a replacement for the Z Propaganda logo on uniforms.
