November 9, 2013 as part of the Olympic torch relay was held on the stem of the Sochi Olympic torch with ISS spacewalk. On board the station delivered Cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, and "ceremony" of the torch into space were also Russians Fyodor Yurchikhin, Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky. Broadcaster RussiaToday (RT) led the live broadcast of this unique event. Not only on air, but also on the Web-site of RT Live, as well as on youtube. Of course, sin was to miss such an event, given that during the live broadcast is a chance to see "something unusual." And the first minutes of demonstration of outer space through the open hatch station expectations: the so-called "boots" (fastwalkers) were there.
For the first few minutes and then trembling and an "pictures" I managed to see at least five fast rotating movement of objects on a black background of space. Detail of the television picture was mediocre, and I wanted to find the source video. Immediately following the ether RT has posted the full version of the broadcast of the Evas on youtube (link www.youtube.com...). Analyse the video stream during the live broadcast is quite difficult, and here is the video file you can dissect and examine frame by frame.
Imagine my surprise when two hours watching this broadcast I was able to examine at least 25 unusual luminous objects, some of which were moving on a curved trajectory, freeze and then moved in the opposite direction or within the camera's field of view at high speed and then abruptly "retarded" and were extinguished. You agree that you will not live. Telekommentatory RT, the PCO and the astronauts themselves taking place in frame of the "movement" is not paying attention, that is understandable: the theme broadcast on the torch is not involved, ducking on the background of the ISS. It should be remembered that the orbital speed of the station is close to 8 km/s.
I haven't found any English accounts of this story.
Свидетелями выноса факела Олимпиады в открытый космос стали не менее 25 НЛО
There is a link to a Russian news video. www.youtube.com...
At the end of the article is a long time-tagged catalog of claimed anomalies. That's actually a nice touch and I wish space-ufo-video posters in the future would emulate it.
Is there any reason to think it's just more space ice?
That was generally true for shuttle videos, but the ISS doesn't use thrusters during spacewalks and rarely if ever these days dumps water.
Still, some prosaic explanation seems likely.

I think he might be talking about what looks like orbs at the very end, go to 2:11
25:18 - 25:20 (minutes and seconds)
In view of the camera, the imaging space station through the open hatch, consistently fly into 2 objects . Tilt angles of their trajectories differ somewhat. The second object is brighter (or larger flies closer to the ISS). (Fig. 2).
The analysis of the trajectories of objects surrounding the umbilical cord (bright "segment" in the center of the frame) and the "lost" power plant TSS-1R (Tethered Satellite System) February 25, 1996 .
"Walker", flying through the field of view of the camera at around 25:19.
25:30 - Very fast, "walker" (not very bright) is moving at a different angle than the previous two.
25:59 - Another object sweeps from left to right.
26:02 - Weak object in the upper right corner of the cell.
26:28 - fast an object is moving upwards.
27:39 - 27:43 - The object appears at the bottom of the frame, against a bright line element of the ISS structure. Then he "goes" to the left of gloves Sergei Ryazan , writes arc slowing down in the end of it, and then moves in the opposite direction, the pomigivaya, and then disappears . Images from category "unbelievable but true".
28:10 - Weak brightest "walker" on the right side of the screen.
37:10 - Red patch may in the upper right side of the frame (Fig. 3) resembles a "digital objects" (red , green and other colors) detected by Martin Stubbs (see for them in the movie, filmed in his material ).
37:13 - rod-shaped object, recorded at just one frame (ie, he crossed the field of view of up to 1/30 second) (Fig. 4).
"Red Spot" and its enlarged image (1 frame, elev. 37:10).
Rod-shaped object (1 frame, elev. 37:13).
Further, by changing shoot camera (with "night" filter and the transition to the foreground shooting) for a long time, nothing unusual is happening. The station is in the shadow zone. Astronauts include relatively weak lights reading lights and busy assembling works.
At 4:00 in the direction of astronauts for a few seconds there is an off-white shimmer. This is most likely a reflection or glare, but it seems unusual color on a background of purple and pink filter chamber.
1:18:24 - To the left of the center of the field of view twice seen a bright flash. Maybe she has a natural cause, as the short-range and long-range plan for the video indistinguishable. At around 1:24:55 ISS re-enters the 40-minute zone "of the day."
1:34:52 - When viewing a single frame from the bottom of the middle frame see white rotating object (presumably, a rod-shaped), rising to the center of the field of view (Figure 5).
Elongated and rotating object at around 1:34:52.
Bright one-frame flash near the bottom of the "Orange Panel" at the mark. 1:58:21.
It is another pause, followed by - stormy finale of "blinking" of the objects.
1:57:19 - On the left side of the screen to 4 frames appear very fast and bright.
1:57:29 - "walker" sweeps diagonally to the left part of the field of view (on the logo RT), and observed for 8 frames.
1:57:31 - In the same area, another fixed object - only 3 shots, he moves from right to left.
1:57:48 - Same area of the screen from right to left, the object is visible only in one frame.
1:58:13 - Relatively slow UFO. Moving up from the "striped arc" in the center of the screen. After the first 4 frames per lens gets light from the sun, but then to be seen again for another 2 seconds when it flies against the tether rings.
1:58:21 - Bright 1-frame flash near the bottom of the "Orange Panel" (Figure 6). It was preceded by two other 1-human outbreaks of lesser intensity.
2:02:17 - 20:02:21 - Multiple single flashes near the "striped arc" moved from the top down, but were not located on the same line. It appears that the objects have at least two.
2:03:44 - 2:03:47 - Another notable "walker" left of "striped arc." Appears at the top, enters the field of view of the camera rapidly, but almost immediately begins to "slow down" and change its brightness, and stops to disappear . Uneven and curvilinear motion inexplicable if involve mechanical causes (dust, fragments of screws or ice particles).
2:04:22 - 2:04-23 - The object appears behind the second from the bottom strips on the "arc" and moves to the left of it. There is 6 frames, then "disappeared", but once again breaks out after 14 shots - even at 4 frames.
2:05:37 - A little above the center of the frame - an object that goes into the top left corner.
2:05:51 - A little to the left of the left hand of Sergei Ryazan visible bright spot, which for several blocks moved up
2:06:05 - 2:06:08 - Behind the second from the bottom strips on the arc of the object is visible, then the camera "blinding" the sun, but after he covers the ISS element, the object continues to "climb".
2:09:33 - 2:09:38 - left of the "striped arc" there is a sparkling "walker" that moves up toward the orange "panel" in the upper left corner of the screen.
2:10:49 - 2:10 51 - The object goes out of the base, "striped arc" and moves to the left, pomigivaya.
2:13:22 - 2:13:23 - At the top of the screen from right to left quickly sweep the two objects (top left)
2:16:31 - 2:16:33 - The left side of the camera's view, behind the "strips" - often flicker before and after the "exposure" from the sun moves vertically

There is nothing to see in the whole video except that i really wanted that cosmonaut to let go of that Olympic Torch
game over man
I'm surprised this thread isn't getting more attention. I'm also surprised the OP shoots down similar past shuttle UFO sightings but at the same time starts up this thread. S+F
I've been looking at the object at 27:39 - 27:43 repeatedly, and I don't know how to explain that one away. It's definitely on a curved trajectory, and as J.O stated, the ISS doesn't use thrusters during spacewalks. That's one impressive curveball, I wonder who threw it.
I'm waiting for the prosaic explanation Jim...
