During CBS News senior space analyst Bill Harwood's explanations in the video Russia's space agency severs ties with the U.S. and its European partners they keep showing the same five seconds of an ISS EVA over and over. What I find distressing is the three taut cables in the vicinity of the astronaut, two of which appear tangled/twisted/intertwined, and one of which looks like it might be attached to the astronaut's glove.
I can understand what is actually happening here, what the cables are for or to what they attach on their in- or less-visible ends.
Question: What is the purpose of these three taut cables near an ISS astronaut during EVA? To what do they connect and why do two appear intertwined? Does one connect to the astronaut's glove?
Here are some screen captures from the video; annotated, cropped and otherwise "enhanced" with the goal of simply helping to indicate what I think I'm seeing.
