MOSCOW, November 3 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian satellites Yamal-300K and Luch-5B are successfully put into orbit, a spokesman for the Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) told Itar-Tass.
The Russian telecommunication satellite Yamal-300K at 10:18 Moscow time separated from the Briz-M upper stage and went into the planned orbit.
The launch of the Proton-M rocket and the placing of the satellites into orbit were carried out successfully, the source said.
