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/. Baikonurís city administration head Konstantin Busygin wonít 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 Russiaís benefit. There has been a trend to punish people with sanctions for that but I wonít 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 Peopleís Republics painted on it.

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.
