This morning before the flight, the film crew began very early – at 5.00 Moscow time. Then Julia, Klim and Anton had a light breakfast, after which they went to prepare for a flight into space: once again they went through all the necessary instructions and a medical examination. After that, the crew of the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft changed into spacesuits, said goodbye to relatives and friends and went to the launch site of the rocket at the Baikonur cosmodrome.

Among those who came to support the film crew before the first flight into space were the families of its members. Yulia's mother admitted that she is very worried and worried about her daughter, but her eldest daughter Anna does not feel any fears – only pride in her stellar mother.

Well, launch in two hours. Exciting … But for some reason I am so sure of them, as if they are already flying there for the tenth time! Probably because I know how hard they prepared, and, of course, because they are very strong people! Both physically and mentally!

– Anna wrote on her instagram a few hours before the start.

General Director of Channel One Konstantin Ernst, Alexander Petrov, Christina Asmus, Andrey Fomin and many other friends and colleagues also came to support Yulia Peresild and Klim Shipenko. The rest keep their fists for the movie crew on Instagram: Kirill Serebrennikov, Chulpan Khamatova, Yekaterina Varnava and Alexander Molochnikov, Elizaveta Boyarskaya and not only send words of support to them.
