Thanks for the clarification.
The confusing arises because the "Name ATEC (goal, conv. Designation)" that the task is listed under is - "On Gagarin from space." Open transmission with ISS RS by amateur radio link to ground receiving stations amateurs around the world images of photographs devoted to the life and work of the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.

This is a voice contact event and NOT a SSTV session. Translation of task info "Conducting sessions * amateur radio with the Center for Space Communications, St. Petersburg"
