The UM (Uzlovoy Module) or NM (Node Module) is a node to be added to the Russian part of the ISS complex. It is also named Prichal.

UM will be delivered by a modified Progress space tug, called Progress-M-UM, which will be launched by a Soyuz-2-1b rocket. The UM will be docked to the nadir port of the MLM (Nauka) module, providing four ports to mound additonal modules and one docking port for ccargo and crew spacecrafts.
