Russia failed to insert a satellite into desired orbit.
13:47

On December 8, 2012 at 13:13 UTC the Russian "Proton-M” rocket-carrier with the "Briz-M” booster was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome to orbit the "Yamal-402” telecommunications satellite for Gazprom Space Systems (GSS), a telecommunications arm of Russia’s energy giant Gazprom.
The Yamal-402 satellite, built by Thales Alenia Space, is equipped with 46 Ku-band transponders providing for the coverage zone over the most part of the territory of Russia, CIS, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The satellite failed to reach the desired orbit as it separated from the upper stage four minutes prior to the calculated time.
The spacecraft’s manufacturer is working on a plan to use the satellite’s own engines and fuel reserves to adjust its orbit.
