MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. The launch of the Astra-2G space satellite with the Proton-M rocket and the Briz-M booster will take place after December 12, the press service of the Russian space agency Roscosmos said.

“Under the effective schedule, the launch of the Yamal-401 space satellite is due next,” the source said, adding that the Yamal satellite would be put in space on December 12. Respectively, Astra-2G will be launched later.
