These "republics" are not recognized internationally.

Rogozin is just a fascious propagandist, ever more desperately trying to get into Putin's best graces. It was suggested before, but now it's plainly evident. Not sure the appropriation of Soviet symbology he's pulling with that "brave Ukranian babushka" will go well with the Russian nationalists though. Fortunately, it appears from continued developments in the ISS program that the rest of Roscosmos is not so eager to follow his footsteps. Best to ignore his antics, as the latest article by Berger mentions. Wonder how much traction this will get, or if the naming will be inconsequentially sidelined.

They should just call it "Z" in following with their letany.

Dedicated to the people they are slaughtering.

Exactly. Meaning of the writing in the last screenshot posted above is "Russia Does Not Abandon Its Own", with the flags for the puppet (and ill-defined) "Donetsk and Lugansk Popular Republics". To be fair they don't specify what they do with those they don't abandon, or who are "their own".

Rogozin appears to have fun with stickers though, wonder if they're still 3M as the white ones for the OneWeb Soyuz flags.

The rocket with the Progress MS-20 truck was taken to the launch pad at Baikonur.

The Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Progress MS-20 truck was taken to the launch pad at Baikonur.

07:00 05/31/2022 (updated: 10:29 05/31/2022)

BAIKONUR COSMODROME, May 31 - RIA Novosti. The Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Progress MS-20 cargo ship, which will leave for the International Space Station in a few days, was taken out of the assembly and test building and installed on the launch pad at Baikonur, RIA Novosti correspondent reports.

A special train took the rocket out of the assembly and test building of the cosmodrome at 5.30 Moscow time. The Soyuz was delivered to site No. 31 of the cosmodrome and placed in a vertical position.

Refueling of the rocket will take place a few hours before the launch on June 3. The launch of the rocket with the ship is scheduled for 12.32 Moscow time. A few minutes after that, the ship will enter Earth orbit, where its solar panels and antennas will open. Then "Progress" will independently continue its way to the ISS .

The spacecraft will fly in an ultra-short two-orbit pattern and from launch to docking with the station will make two revolutions around the Earth . It will take him a little over three hours.

"Progress MS-20" will bring fuel, water, compressed nitrogen and various equipment - on-board resource equipment, tools and devices for spacewalks, cables, sensors, medical supplies and clothing. Also in the ship are stacks for conducting experiments on the study of the human digestive and immune systems, the influence of flight factors on the body, the development of new sterilizing agents, as well as the study of the influence of microorganisms on the strength of materials in space.

In addition, Progress houses two pairs of ultra-small spacecraft YuZGU-55 No. 11 and No. 12 and Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan No. 1 and No. 2, which the cosmonauts will launch into orbit during one of the upcoming spacewalks. Also among the cargo is a 3D printer developed by the Rocket and Space Corporation (RKK) Energia. Products printed on it will be returned to Earth to study the impact of microgravity on additive manufacturing.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with Progress MS-20 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on June 3 will be dedicated to the DPR and LPR . The flags of the republics will be applied to the head fairing of the rocket. Children from Donbass also came to watch the launch .

Three Russian cosmonauts Oleg Artemiev , Denis Matveev and Serey Korsakov, Americans Chell Lindgren , Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins, and Italian Samantha Cristoforetti are currently working on board the International Space Station .

Progress MS-20 will spend 173 days in space.

NASA will provide live coverage of the launch and docking of a Russian cargo spacecraft carrying about three tons of food, fuel, and supplies for the Expedition 67 crew aboard the International Space Station.

The unpiloted Russian Progress 81 is scheduled to launch at 5:32 a.m. EDT (2:32 p.m. Baikonur time) Friday, June 3, on a Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Coverage will begin at 5:15 a.m. on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website.

The Progress spacecraft will be placed into a fast-track, two-orbit journey to link up to the aft port of the station’s Zvezda service module at 9:02 a.m. Friday, June 3. NASA coverage of rendezvous and docking will begin at 8:15 a.m.

The International Space Station is a convergence of science, technology, and human innovation that demonstrates new technologies and enables research not possible on Earth. NASA recently recognized 21 years of continuous human presence aboard the orbiting laboratory, which has hosted 258 people and a variety of international and commercial spacecraft. The space station remains the springboard to NASA's next great leap in exploration including missions to the Moon under Artemis and ultimately, human exploration of Mars.

Top Baikonur official shrugs off sanctions threat over Donbass-dedicated launch

The launch of a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with the Progress MS-20 spacecraft is scheduled for June 3

2 JUN, 02:46

BAIKONUR /Kazakhstan/, June 2. /TASS/. Baikonur’s city administration head Konstantin Busygin won’t be intimidated by any threat of personal sanctions that may be imposed against him over the upcoming space launch dedicated to Donbass, as he himself said in an interview with TASS.

"Why should I be afraid of personal sanctions? I have expressed my position before and I am making no secret of it. If there are sanctions, then, so be it. I work here based on the instructions and decisions of two presidents and I view my job as extremely vital and responsible," he emphasized. "I primarily work for Russia’s benefit. There has been a trend to punish people with sanctions for that but I won’t be intimidated by such restrictions," Busygin added.

The administration chief noted that his post was the only one where candidates were appointed by the Russian president and approved by the Kazakh president.

The launch of a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with the Progress MS-20 spacecraft is scheduled for 12:32 pm Moscow time on June 3. The second stage of the rocket bears the inscription "Donbass" and its nose cone has the flags of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics painted on it.

Progress Cargo Craft Docks to Station after Two Orbits

Mark Garcia Posted on June 3, 2022

An uncrewed Russian Progress 81 spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station’s Zvezda service module at 9:02 a.m. EDT, two orbits after launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Progress is delivering almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the International Space Station for the Expedition 67 crew.

"Progress MS-20" docked to the ISS.

Progress MS-20 spacecraft launched in honor of Donbas docked with ISS.

16:08 06/03/2022 (updated: 16:21 06/03/2022)

BAIKONUR COSMODROME, June 3 - RIA Novosti. The Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft has docked with the International Space Station, a RIA Novosti correspondent reports from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with Progress MS-20 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on June 3 is dedicated to the DPR and LPR , and the inscription "Donbass" was applied to the second stage of the launch vehicle. The flags of the republics are applied to the head fairing of the rocket.

According to Roskosmos , the Mission Control Center near Moscow confirmed the regular closing of the hooks of the docking mechanism. Now the cosmonauts at the station will have to open the hatches, dismantle the docking mechanism and transfer the Progress power supply systems to the combined power supply.

The rocket launched from Baikonur at 12.32 Moscow time, and a few minutes later the ship went into orbit and began an independent flight to the ISS . It flew in an ultrashort circuit and made two orbits around the Earth .

A two-day scheme is considered standard, in which the ship circles the Earth 34 times in two days. There is also a shortened four-turn scheme, in which the journey to the station takes about six hours.

"Progress MS-20" brought fuel, water, compressed nitrogen and various equipment - on-board resource equipment, tools and devices for spacewalks, cables, sensors, medical supplies and clothing. Also in the ship are stacks for conducting experiments on the study of the human digestive and immune systems, the influence of flight factors on the body, the development of new sterilizing agents, as well as the study of the influence of microorganisms on the strength of materials in space.

In addition, Progress has loaded two pairs of ultra-small spacecraft YuZGU-55 No. 11 and No. 12 and Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan No. 1 and No. 2, which the cosmonauts will launch into orbit during one of the upcoming spacewalks. Also among the cargo is a 3D printer developed by the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation. Products printed on it will be returned to Earth to study the impact of microgravity on additive manufacturing.

Three Russian cosmonauts Oleg Artemiev , Denis Matveev and Serey Korsakov, Americans Chell Lindgren , Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins, and Italian Samantha Cristoforetti are currently working on board the International Space Station .

Progress MS-20 will spend 173 days in space.

Can anyone repost media-kit for this launch that appeared on roscosmos.ru? I can't access the site from outside of Russia.
I'm looking for insertion orbit parameters.

Cargo spacecraft Progress MS-20 took the ISS away from space debris.

Roscosmos reported that the Progress MS-20 spacecraft took the ISS away from space debris.

23:13 16.06.2022

MOSCOW, June 16 - RIA Novosti. The Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft conducted a maneuver to avoid space debris from the International Space Station, Roscosmos reported on Thursday.

"Russian" Progress "again led the ISS away from "space debris". At 22:03 Moscow time, the engines of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft were turned on: they worked for 275 s, and the impulse value was 0.5 m/s. As a result, the average the height of the station's orbit has increased by 890 m," the state corporation said in a Telegram message.

It is noted that according to the Moscow Region Mission Control Center , a dangerous approach was predicted at 00.50 Moscow time at a distance of 285 meters.

Roskosmos emphasized that the Russian Progress MS spacecraft today are the main standard means of carrying out ISS orbit corrections and maneuvers to avoid space debris objects.

"For example, the recently flooded Progress MS-18 provided nine corrections to its orbital height: six planned and three evasive maneuvers from "garbage," the state corporation recalled.
