Russia plans seven space launches from Baikonur and Plesetsk and one from the Kourou European Space Center for the next three months.

"The next mission is due to occur at 4:12 p.m. on December 8 from the 200th site of the Baikonur Space Center. A Proton-M LV with a Briz-M upper stage will put the Inmarsat-5F1 satellite into orbit," a source from the space industry said on Friday.

A Russian Soyuz-ST-B rocket with the Gaia satellite aboard will take off from the Kourou European Space Center at 1:12 p.m. on December 19.

The trial launch of a Soyuz-2.1v rocket powered by a Volga upper stage and carrying SKRL calibration spheres and the Aist satellite will blast off from the 43rd site of the Plesetsk Space Center on December 23.

A Rokot rocket with a Briz-KM upper stage and a set of defense satellites will be launched from the 133rd site of Plesetsk on December 25.

A Proton-M rocket with a Briz-M upper stage will carry the Express-AM5 satellite to orbit from the 81st site at 2:50 p.m. on December 26.

Russia does not plan any space launches for January.

The first space launch of 2014 will occur on February 5 from the Baikonur Space Center. A Soyuz-U rocket will bring the Progress M-22M resupply ship to the International Space Station (ISS) on that day.

A Proton-M rocket with a Briz-M upper stage and the TurkSat-4A satellite will go on a mission from the 81st site of Baikonur on February 10.

The launch of a Stilet converted rocket with the Kondor-E satellite from Baikonur has been scheduled for February 27, the source said.
