MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. The launch program of the Russian-Ukrainian Dnepr converted missiles has been suspended, commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Troops Colonel-General Sergey Karakayev told reporters on Wednesday ahead of Strategic Missile Troops Day.
"The Russian president decided to suspend the Dnepr conversion program in April 2015," he said.
The Dnepr rocket was last launched on March 26, 2015, from Yasny launch base in Russia’s Orenburg region (in the Urals). It powered into orbit the South Korean Kompsat-3A communications satellite.
