At the same time, judging by the tracks next to the done hole, attempts to make the hull had a few. According to the assumptions involved in the investigation, such traces could occur due to the fact that the drills lacked focus (it is not under pressure), which is typical of the works in the condition of microgravity. In addition, the source did not exclude unauthorized entry of the Americans into the Russian ship.
