RKK Energia: Antenna Glitch Will Not Impede Progress Docking

RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, April 26 (RIA Novosti) – The Progress M-19M space freighter on Friday will perform a nominal automated approach to the International Space Station (ISS) despite the failure to deploy one of its navigation antennas, the head of the Russian space corporation RKK Energia, Vitaly Lopota, said.

The docking of the Progress spacecraft with the Zvezda module on ISS is set for 04.26 pm Moscow time (12:26 GMT) on April 26.
