50 days after the failed launch of AMC-14, Roskosmos is ready to resume launching Proton-M/Briz-M.
ITAR-TASS reports that the deputy head of Roskosmos has declared this Monday to journalists that the reasons for the failure had been eliminated and that nothing prevented the launch of Proton-M/Briz-M.
Also Monday, the Russian government has published Decision N° 618-r authorizing the Ministry of Defense to lend equipment and personnel for the launches of Astra-1M, Nimiq-4 and Inmarsat-4F3 with Proton-M/Briz-M.
(Two last messages are moved from "Proton-M/Briz-M launches to resume soon" thread - anik)
Anik, I take note that you prefer to incorporate my two messages in the already existing "Inmarsat 4F3 launch" rather than maintaining the specific thread I tried to create for Proton-M/Briz-M flight resumption.
Be aware that Astra-1M and Nimiq-4 could well be launched before Inmarsat-4F3, that's why IMHO a specific thread for Proton-M/Briz-M launch resumption might be more appropriate ....

"the next launch of Proton-M rocket with Briz-M upper stage will be with Inmarsat 4-F3 satellite."
Time will tell if you were right
what the location orbit position will be Inmarsat 4-F3 ?
