Roscosmos space corporation previously said that a Progress cargo craft would lift off for the International Space Station on 23 July, while a Proton rocket with communication satellites would head for orbit on 30 July.
Sputnik is live from the International Space Station as the Russian Progress-MS-15 resupply cargo spacecraft, which blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan hours earlier, has arrived to dock and deliver supplies, including food and fuel, to the Expedition 63 crew.
