(RIA Novosti) - A Russian Progress M-57 cargo spaceship launched Saturday from Kazakhstan's Baikonur base has successfully docked with the International Space Station, a spokesman for the mission control center said Monday, reports Trend.

"The ship docked with the station in automatic mode, and fortunately the crew did not have to intervene," the spokesman said. "The Progress delivered to the station fuel, consumables, scientific and research equipment, foodstuffs and water for the crew of the 13th ISS expedition - Russia's Pavel Vinogradov and American Jeff Williams."
