Earlier, on December 2, it became known that the launch of the Soyuz-ST carrier rocket with two Galileo navigation satellites from the Kuru cosmodrome was postponed for the second time due to the unavailability of the French telemetry receiving station.
At the end of November, it was reported that some of the Russian missile launches would be transferred to the French Kourou cosmodrome. According to the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin, four missile launches from this cosmodrome are planned in 2022.
