MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. The space freighter Progress MS-02 has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) and begun its descent to the Earth, the Flight Control Center told TASS on Friday.

"The spacecraft Progress MS-02 undocked at the designated time," the Flight Control Center said.

According to the Center, the space freighter will fire braking engines at about 3:50 p.m. Moscow time (12:50 GMT), after which it will enter the dense layers of the atmosphere and will be sunk in about an hour in the non-navigable area in the Pacific Ocean.

The Progress MS-02 was launched from the Baikonur space center on March 31 and on April 2 it docked with the ISS.

The space freighter delivered 2.4 tons of various cargoes to the space station.
