Personnel working on the coupler connection for the rail tug that will push the transporter/erector carrying the Soyuz launch vehicle from the launcher assembly and testing building (монтажно-испытательный корпус; montazhno-ispytatelniy korpus – MIK) to the launch pad. The transporter/erector will exit through doors at the far end of the building.
