Russian Satellite Communications Company plans to launch satellites by Proton boosters only up to 2020, – Company’s Director General Yuri Prokhorov said.

He also pointed out that Proton boosters and Briz-M upper stage proved to be the most reliable launch vehicles. Besides both the booster and the upper stage are manufactured in Russia and this fact is also of great importance.

RSCC Deputy Director Alexander Ganin added that in the nearest future all Proton boosters will launch two satellites at once.

“We plan to launch all our satellites by Proton. Express-80 and Express-103 will be launched by one booster. Express-AMU4 will go to space with another satellite but this issue is being discussed at the moment. Thus we are going to minimize the costs”, – Ganin stated.
