We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the Yamal-401  satellite built by Airbus. We have confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 4:17 am EST, or 09:17 GMT, approximately 9 hours and 1 minute after liftoff.

Everything occurred as planned with ignition, shutdown and separation of the Proton’s first three stages. Then the Breeze M upper stage with the satellite continued the mission, igniting four times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
