Cross-posts from Plan of Russian Space Launches (part 2) thread:

Progression--stage right--of the launch date for the second Blagovest satellite.

The remaining Proton manifest still included an impressive list of up to five federal payloads, but it is deceptive due to tenuous chances to fly for the majority of these missions before the end of the year. The first of them -- the Blagovest-12L military communications satellite -- was scheduled for liftoff on March 22, which is very possibly the only Proton mission with a solid launch date in the course of the entire year.
