One of the five launches planned for this year from the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Region was postponed for a year. The rest will be carried out under a commercial program.

In September last year, the general director of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said that in 2020 five launches are planned from Vostochny: in April, May, June, July and November. As reported RIA News" a source in the rocket and space industry, the last launch will not take place, it was postponed to 2021, since the Meteor-M meteorological satellite did not have time to make the target date.

The remaining four launches will take place with OneWeb UK communications satellites. In total, since April 2016, five launches have been carried out from Vostochny, one of which ended unsuccessfully - in December 2017, the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle with the Meteor-M satellite and 18 small spacecraft did not enter orbit.
