Looks like there's pressure from Moscow to launch it this year.

I fear the worse!  :(

Lets wait, one source has 18:00 local, one says next year :)

P.S
On the Metop-A, I was part of the launch team, you should have seen the board at the hotel for the duty schedule.... 6 attempts if I remember right.

Do we know (apologies if it's posted) how long the mission is to S/C Sep? (I know it's a super secret launch, but worth asking to get to a "successful mission" point).

The Volga upper stage has separated ! Everything is fine. Payload separation should occur within about 1,5 hour.
