MOSCOW, December 8 (Itar-Tass) —— A Briz-M booster carrying the Russian telecommunication satellite Yamal-402 has separated from the Proton-M rocket.
“Nine minutes after the launch, at 17:23 Moscow time, the booster separated from the carrier rocket and continued to deliver the Russian satellite to the target orbit in accordance with the flight sequence,” a spokesman for the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) told Itar-Tass on Saturday, December 8.
