MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has no immediate plans for holding special meetings and discussions with the heads of the space agency Roscosmos in order to discuss the state of affairs in the space industry.
"There will be no meetings within coming days," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Thursday.
Cargo spacecraft Progress M-27M was launched into space on Tuesday, April 28, from the Baikonur space site in Kazakhstan with a Soyuz-2.1a rocket. Later it turned out that the spacecraft entered an unexpected orbit and communication with it was lost. After several unsuccessful attempts to put it under control specialists agreed that docking it to the International Space Station would be impossible. The possibilities of dumping it are being considered.
Roscosmos first deputy chief Alexander Ivanov is going to revise cargo spacecraft launch schedules. Under the original timetable, the next Progress was to be launched towards the ISS in August.
