Do we have any good info pages in English on the two satellites?

And is this a Briz-M five burn profile?

 The original plan was to launch Telkom-3 with Yamal-300K, using the 745 azimuth to a 48 initial orbit. Ekspress-MD2 was to be launched with Ekspress-AM8.
 The failure of JCSAT11 lead to the closure of the 48 orbit.
