MOSCOW, January 31. /TASS/. Proton-M carrier with Breeze-M booster and the UK Inmarsat communication satellite was launched from Baikonur (Kazakhstan), press service of Roskosmos told TASS on Sunday.
"The space apparatus and the booster separated from the third stage of the carrier in about nine minutes after the start," the press service said.
The satellite will be put into the supersonic orbit of 65,000 kilometres, the Khrunichev centre reported on its website. Then, using its own engines the apparatus will be taken to the geostationary orbit, where it will be used for telecommunication purposes. The apparatus "does not have military purposes," the website reads.
