Does this mean the Luch-5A can't be used?

No ! Luch-5 satellites also have sun and terrestrial sensors to find their orientation.

AMOS-5 has suffered a sudden LOS and, after 3 days of no improvement, seems to have failed within GEO. If the situation is irreversible, there is another zombiesat in the belt.
