MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Two Russian telecommunication satellites, Express-AT1 and Express-AT2, have been delivered to the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan for pre-launch preparations, a spokesman for the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos said on Monday.

Both satellites, designed by Krasnoyarsk-based Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems, were delivered to Baikonur by Antonov An-124-100 cargo aircraft.

The satellites are scheduled to be launched in a pair in mid-March by a Russian Proton-M rocket powered by a Briz-M booster.

Express-AT1 and Express-AT2 satellites have life spans of 15 years and were designed to serve the eastern and western parts of Russia with up-to-date telecommunications services, including television broadcasting and data transmission.
