MOSCOW, January 22. /TASS/. Aist-2D spacecraft and nanosatellite SamSat-218 have been delivered to the Vostochny spaceport in Russia’s Far East for the first launch, Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said on Thursday.

"Spacecraft Aist-2D and SamSat-218 were delivered to the assembly and testing facility for carrier rockets at the Vostochny cosmodrome," the agency said in a statement.

The spacecraft will remain in sealed containers until construction works are finished at the assembly and testing facility. After that, specialists from the Center for Operation of Space Ground-Based Infrastructure will test equipment.

The plane carrying spacecraft landed at the airport of Blagoveschensk in the evening yesterday. The satellites and the Mikhaylo Lomonosov spacecraft that will be delivered to the cosmodrome at the beginning of February will be launched first from the Vostochny spaceport.

The first launch from the spaceport is preliminarily planned for the second half of April.
