RIA Novosti said:
MOSCOW, January 29 (RIA Novosti) - Russia’s Proton-M carrier rocket will orbit a Mexican communication satellite, SatMex-8, in the first launch since the Yamal-402 satellite trouble, a spokesman for the Proton manufacturer, the Khrunichev Center, said on Tuesday.
The launch is tentatively scheduled to take place in late February, he added.
