No more trip to Moscow (Red Square, Tsar Cannon, Tsar Bell) after the preflight press conference in Star City for the prime and back-up crews?
You do not often see changes in preflight traditions in the Russian space program.

I understand that via a friend that the situation was temporary and they visited much earlier. I think it is due to some temporary constructions at Red Square that may have led to the earlier visit but I am also not completely sure either.
