MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. The launch of the first manned spacecraft Soyuz MS to the International Space Station (ISS) has been rescheduled from June 21 to June 24, Roscosmos State Space Corporation reported on Friday.

Also, the landing of the manned freight spacecraft Soyuz TMA-19M has been rescheduled to June 18 from June 5, Roscosmos said.
