MOSCOW, Dec 30 - RIA News. The launch of the Russian-German space observatory "Spectr-RG" from the Baikonur cosmodrome, scheduled for early April 2019, was postponed to the end of the month, a source in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.
"The launch of the Proton-M launch vehicle with the DM-03 upper stage and the Spectr-RG observatory has been postponed from the beginning to the end of April," the agency’s source said.

According to http://novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/forum/forum14/topic16307/?PAGEN_1=19 MS-13 will be №746 and MS-14 №743. MS-14 will be also in 2019.

№746 is the odd one out. I can’t find it in the available documents. The contract documents show all the others with crew; though the current documents still show №740 with two Russians onboard. I wonder if №746 will be the unpiloted Soyuz MS-14?

Seeking clarification or correction:

The Russian New Year Holiday (a public holiday) now includes January 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8.  Christmas, another public holiday, falls on January 7.

Is that the full extent of this holiday?  If possible this holiday season, did people also take Monday, December 31 off?

In essence, most launch activities this holiday season would have ended for the holidays on Friday, December 28 or Saturday, December 29.

(Most) everybody is back to work on Wednesday, January 9?

Up to three Soyuz launches: the first launch for the OneWeb constellation, paving the way for upcoming launches from Baïkonur starting in the last quarter of 2019; a fifth O3b/SES mission; the COSMO-SkyMed/CHEOPS mission for the Italian space agency and defense ministry; and for ESA.

Cross-post re: launch date/time of Soyuz MS-12:
According to: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=45689.msg1887702#msg1887702

correct time is 00:42 UTC on March 1, 2019  (6:42 pm CST on February 28, 2019)

SFN Launch Schedule, updated January 9, gives the same information.

Two commercial launches of the Proton rocket from Baikonur will take place in 2019
Quote
“In the first launch, the European telecommunications spacecraft Eutelsat 5 West B and the American technological satellite MEV-1 are scheduled to be put into orbit, and the second is the Russian telecommunications device Yamal-601,” the agency’s source corrected.
Quote
Yamal-601 is created by the European company Thales Alenia Space on the order of the Russian company Gazprom Space Systems. It will take a standing point of 49 degrees east longitude, in which it will replace the current Yamal-202.

"Due to the need for additional checks of the spacecraft, the launch was postponed to the first half of May, but due to the May holidays, it may move to June," the agency’s source said.
According to him, at the present time "Spectr-RG" is being tested at NPO Lavochkin, where he was made. "At the verification stage, comments were identified that are eliminated," he said.

Communication system "Blagovest" of the Ministry of Defense of Russia began to deploy in 2017. Since then, three spacecraft have been launched into orbit.
"The delivery of the satellite to the Baikonur cosmodrome is scheduled for the end of February, launching with the help of the Proton-M rocket is possible in the first half of April," the agency’s source said.

A "mini-schedule" for the next few Proton launches in 2019; references are posts in this thread up-thread; seeking clarification or correction:

Satellite                             Upper Stage   Launch Month(s)
Blagovest #4                       Briz-M             NET H1 April
Yamal-601                           Briz-M             April-May
Spektr-RG                           DM-03             H2 May-June
Eutelsat 5 West B & MEV-1    Briz-M             NET mid-May

What is the minimum turn-around time between Proton launches?  Is it possible to successfully execute four launch campaigns in 3 months?

ISTR that the Eutelsat-MEV processing will use all available satellite processing space, which would preclude another payload from processing simultaneously?
