The problems with the Proton-M booster of the kind that crashed shortly after lift-off from Baikonur on July 2 have been fixed, and the system can be cleared for use again.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin is to submit a report about this to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Mr Rogozin spoke about this at a session of his defence industry commission in Moscow on Friday.

He also mentioned arrangements to provide insurance coverage on payloads carried by Proton boosters.

The July 2 crash resulted in the loss of three satellites intended to augment the constellation of Russia's GLONASS global navigation and positioning system.
