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.
"The launch of the Soyuz MS spacecraft scheduled for June 21 has been postponed to June 24," Roscosmos said in a statement.
Also, the landing of the manned freight spacecraft Soyuz TMA-19M has been rescheduled to June 18 from June 5, Roscosmos said.
The changes to the flight program of the ISS’s Russian segment are designed to "increase the effectiveness of cosmonauts’ work," Roscosmos said.
