The experts of the Mission Control Center had calculated the parameters of the station’s flight orbit changes, which the evasion maneuver was performed according to in the regular mode.

The ISS flight trajectory was changed using 4 engines of Progress M-28M cargo transport spacecraft. They kept operating for 299 seconds with a 0.3-m/sec momentum. After the trajectory change, the maximal altitude of the orbit achieved 421.16 km.
