Uncertain dates

2023: A Soyuz-2-1b rocket to launch a cluster of four Rezonans spacecraft to study plasma and the magnetic field around the Earth. The same launch would also deploy MKA-FKI No. 4/Karat spacecraft carrying the Strannik plasma-research payload. In 2008, the launch was promised as early as 2012, 299 and later in 2013. By 2009, the mission was planned in 2014, (388) however by the beginning of the year it was postponed to 2017-2018. Moreover, at the COSPAR conference in the summer of 2014, the launch was promised no earlier than 2019. The launch was then postponed to 2021 and in 2018, it was postponed to 2023.

2023: A Soyuz-2.1b rocket to launch the Arktika-M No. 3 remote-sensing satellite. (As of 2018)

2023: Russia to launch Ionosfera-M No. 1, Ionosfera-M No. 2 scientific satellites.

2023: Russia to launch the Resurs-PM No. 3 remote-sensing satellite.

2023: A Zenit-3SLBF/Fregat-SB to launch the Elektro-M (No. 1, No. 1-1) weather-forecasting satellite into geostationary orbit from Baikonur. (In 2008, the launch was promised in 2014. (299) and 2009, the mission slipped to 2015 (388). By 2012, the launch was delayed to 2018. In 2015, the mission was postponed from April 2021.)

2023: A Soyuz-2-1b rocket with a Fregat upper stage to launch a Meteor-MP No. 1 satellite from Site 1S in Vostochny. (As of middle of 2015. The launch was previously expected in 2021.)

2023: Russia to launch the Ekspress-PF2 communications satellite.

2023: Russia to launch the Ekspress-PF3 communications satellite.

2023: A Soyuz-2.1b rocket to launch Luna-Resurs spacecraft to the surface of the Moon. As of beginning of 2011, an Indian GSLV Mk-II rocket was to launch a Chandrayaan-2/Luna-Resurs lunar mission in 2017, including a Russian-built lander, which would carry a rover built in India. (489) In 2009, the mission was promised in 2012. In 2007, the mission was expected in 2011, but by 2010, it slipped to September 2013. The Phobos-Grunt fiasco pushed the mission to 2016-2017. Also, in 2011, the mission was split into an orbiter to be launched on an Indian rocket and a Luna-Resurs lander to fly on a Soyuz-2 rocket. By 2014, the mission was postponed until 2023.
