MOSCOW, April 23 (RIA Novosti) – A Proton-M rocket to be launched next week carrying two satellites has been loaded with propellant and will be rolled out to a launch pad on Thursday, the Russian space agency Roscosmos said Wednesday.

“Pre-launch propellant servicing has been successfully completed,” Roscosmos said in a statement. “The state commission resolved to roll the rocket out to the launch pad tomorrow morning.”

The rollout will begin at 4:30 a.m. Moscow time at the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, the only launch site for Proton.

The launch of the Proton-M, scheduled for Monday, is planned to place two satellites into orbit, the KazSat-3 telecommunications satellite and the Luch-5V relay satellite.
