Khrunichev Statement on Yamal-402 launch status

On 9 December, during the target orbit insertion phase, the Yamal 402 spacecraft separated ahead of the scheduled time, however the spacecraft is under control and evaluation is performed of its orbit parameters. All the satellite systems are functioning nominally and experts believe that 2-4 additional burns of the propulsion system will be required to place it to the target orbital position. Following the completion of all maneuvers, the spacecraft will be handed over to OAO Gazprom Space Systems for operation as originally planned, i.e. on 8 January.
