Caption: Spacesuit. Russian cosmonaut wears a Strizh ("swift") spacesuit which is worn during launch and re-entry. It protects the cosmonaut if the spaceship is partially depressurised, if the cosmonaut ejects from the spacecraft, and when the spacecraft flies at over three times the speed of sound. The suit does not protect against a complete depressurisation.
