EVA training
Google translation:
In the hydro-training complex (swimming pool) of the Cosmonaut Training Center named after Yu.A. Gagarin started special tests in the interests of VCD-45. The main task of the planned spacewalk is the installation of scientific equipment on the outer surface of the ISS RS within the framework of the Russian-German ICARUS experiment, whose purpose is to study and obtain data on the global migration of animals and birds, as well as experimental testing of scientific equipment onboard the ISS RS for further use on automatic space vehicles.
The scientific data that will be obtained as a result of the experiment are designed to help solve various environmental problems, study climate change, preserve biodiversity, control the spread of invasive species and infectious diseases, prevent catastrophic events, and ensure air traffic safety.
In the process of work, the testers and divers of the CPC together with the specialists of SPKorolev RSC Energia. Korolev worked on the installation of scientific equipment ICARUS, the deployment of receiving antennas, laying the cable harness and other tasks.
In total, three experiments are planned. In January 2018, the main and backup crews of ISS-55/56 and ISS-56/57 as part of Oleg Artemyev, Alexei Ovchinin, Sergei Prokopiev and Oleg Kononenko will start training on the VKD-45 targets.

That's really a shame.

After three years of work and delay, Hydrolaboratory is still offline ! They have to train in the swimming pool of the sport complex !

A real shame.

Today, the members of the main crews of the ISS-55/56 and ISS-56/57 Oleg Artemyev and Sergei Prokopyev trained in out-of-vessel activities (VKD-45) in the hydro-training complex (swimming pool) of the Yuri Kosmonov Cosmonaut Training Center. Gagarin. They will have to install a set of equipment for studying the migration of fauna in the framework of the Russian-German experiment ICARUS (International Cooperation for Animal Research Using Space) on the outer surface of the Zvezda service module of the Russian segment of the ISS. using space technologies ").

According to the NK forum VKD-45 will be in the July/August timeframe.
So we can assume, that Artemyev and Prokopyev will take part in this EVA.

According to http://novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/news/35923/ both cosmonauts will wear new Orlan-MKS spacesuits.
It is planned to deliver the second one in the summer.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-120
NASA Television to Air Russian Spacewalk at International Space Station

Russian cosmonauts living and working on the International Space Station will venture outside Wednesday, Aug. 15, for a spacewalk expected to last about six hours. Live coverage of the excursion will air on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Expedition 56 Flight Engineers Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos are scheduled to exit the Pirs airlock at 11:58 a.m. EDT. Live coverage of the spacewalk will begin at 11:15 a.m.

Artemyev and Prokopyev will manually launch four small technology satellites, retrieve material science samples from the hull of the Zvezda service module, and install an experiment called Icarus onto the Russian segment of the space station.

Icarus is a collaborative environmental experiment between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Roscosmos to study the migratory patterns of small animals on Earth. It consists of an antenna and GPS hardware to track the movements of animals that have been tagged with small GPS receivers. The experiment may provide data about how animals move from one location to another, how animal population density shifts over time, and how diseases spread.

The spacewalk will be the 212th in support of station assembly, maintenance and upgrades, the third in Artemyev’s career and the first for Prokopyev. Artemyev will be designated extravehicular crew member 1 (EV1) for the spacewalk, while Prokopyev will be extravehicular crew member 2 (EV2).

Crew Preps for Russian, U.S. Spacewalks While Juggling Space Research

The Expedition 56 crew is getting ready for a spacewalk Wednesday outside the International Space Station’s Russian segment. Meanwhile, the orbital residents continued apace with space science and preparation for a pair of September spacewalks.

Two cosmonauts will suit up inside their Orlan spacesuits and exit the Pirs airlock Wednesday at 11:58 a.m. EDT for about six hours of science and maintenance work. Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev will toss four tiny satellites into space, install antennas and cables for the Icarus animal-tracking experiment and collect exposed science experiments.

NASA astronauts Drew Feustel, Ricky Arnold and Serena Auñón-Chancellor assisted the cosmonauts throughout Tuesday and reviewed their roles for tomorrow’s spacewalk. NASA TV begins its live spacewalk coverage Wednesday at 11:15 a.m.

Arnold started his morning replacing gear inside the Combustion Integrated Rack then ended his day with plumbing duty on the Water Processing Assembly. Auñón-Chancellor checked on mice being observed for the Rodent Research-7 study that observes how internal microbes impact organisms living in space.

Finally, European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst spent the afternoon working on U.S. spacesuits. He, Feustel and Arnold are gearing up for two spacewalks at the end of September to replace batteries on the Port 4 truss structure’s power channels.

From what I could collect from different sources…
The spacewalk will be the 212th in support of station assembly, maintenance and upgrades, the third in Artemyev’s career and the first for Prokopyev.
Estimated duration; 6 hours 10 minutes
Artemyev will be designated extravehicular crew member 1 (EV1) for the spacewalk, while Prokopyev will be extravehicular crew member 2 (EV2).

During their extravehicular activity,they performed the following operations:

- Launch of four small technology satellites (two nanosatellites "Tanyusha-SWSU-3 & 4" and two nanosatellites "Siriussat-1 & 2", part of " Radioskaf " program.

-Carrying out panoramic television shootings of the project " Cosmos 360 ", which Roscosmos, RKK Energia "and TV channel R).

- Retrieve the space experiment "Environment " (devices-exhibits with Microorganisms, placed in August 2017 on the  Zvezda service module segment and intended for return to Earth).

- Perform sample collection ("Test" experiement) from DC-1 "Pirs" and MRM-2 "Poïsk.

- Install the "Icarus" (International Cooperation for Animal Research Using Space) experiment on the external surface of the Zvezda Service Module.
It consists of an electronic unit, GPS hardware, interfaces, receiving and transmitting  antennas.

You are a rock star, centaurinasa! I was thinking "I hope centaurinasa is able to cover the EVA again as I'm going to be really busy" and here you are and with more info that I can use in an article for the spacewalk. Thanks!

Siriussat-1 & 2:
Each satellite is equiped with a space particle detector for studying "space weather".
The sensor was developed by the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Moscow State University and was assembled with the participation of a group of schoolchildren from the Sirius Educational Center.

weight of each satellite is about 1.3 kg.

The Tanyusha-YuZGU, also known as "Tanyusha-SWSU" or "Radioskaf RS", are small Russian experimental satellite, which are to be deployed from the ISS during spacewalk. They were developed at the Southwestern State University (SWSU, YuZGU), Kursk
The satellites were constructed using a 3D printer for the structure.
