The first launch of the Proton-M carrier rocket after the May crash is expected to be carried out on September 28, 2014, Roscosmos First Deputy Director Alexander Ivanov said in an interview with Russia's Ekho Moskvy radio station.
"The first launch of the Proton is scheduled for September 28," Ivanov said.
The Proton-M carrier rocket previously launched on May 16 from Baikonur space center collided with communications satellite Express 4R and burned up in the atmosphere above China, leaving Russia without its most powerful telecommunications satellite.
