    I think those are just cosmonaut uniforms. During mission they wore Sokol pressure suits.

    Mir was the first modular space station in the World and was assembled in orbit from 1986 to 1996.

    That's an "interesting" pic, cuz its not Mir.  Some graphic artist has mashed Soviet & US modules together in a fairly haphazard manner.

    Mir actually looked like this when its was finally completed:

    50 YEARS AGO
    Zond-5: A prototype of the Soviet crew capsule loops behind the Moon!

    In September 1968, alarms probably sounded at US intelligence agencies and NASA, as the USSR finally succeeded in flying a crew vehicle prototype around the Moon during the Zond-5 mission. The first ever return of a spacecraft from the lunar vicinity, though only with tortoises and small organisms onboard, underscored for the US leadership the enormous importance of a recent decision to send the Apollo-8 crew into the lunar orbit before the end of the year. The Moon Race was quickly approaching its climax.



    The Zond-5 mission at a glance:
    Spacecraft designations: 7K-L1 (11F91) No. 9, 1968-076A
    Launch vehicle: 8K82K (UR-500K, Proton-K) No. / Block D (11S824)
    Launch site: Tyuratam, Site 81, "Left" pad
    Crew: Unmanned
    Launch date and time: 1968 Sept. 15, 00:42:10.77 Moscow Time (21:42 GMT on September 14)
    Mission results: The flight around the Moon and the return to Earth
    End of mission: 1968 Sept. 21
    Landing point coordinate: 32 degrees 38 minutes South latitude, 65 degrees 33 minutes East longitude
    Flight duration: 6 days 18 minutes 59 seconds
