Russian space program in 2024

At the end of January 2024, Deputy Defense Minister Aleksei Krivoruchko promised 18 orbital launches of military spacecraft before the end of the year. Seven launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles were also planned for 2024. In total, more than 40 orbital launches were planned by Roskosmos, according to an interview of its head Yuri Borisov published on February 19. However, Borisov cautioned that it was only a plan which would be difficult to fulfill given the experience in the previous year.

Planned Russian space launches in 2024:

Delayed from June 8 (?): A Soyuz-2 rocket to launch Kondor-FKA No. 2 satellite from Pad 1S in Vostochny. (As of March 2023)


Second quarter of 2024: A Soyuz-2.1a rocket to launch the Obzor-R remote-sensing satellite. In early 2024, the launch was expected in the second quarter of that year.


Delayed from July (?): Russia to launch Elektro-M No. 2-2 weather-forecasting satellite.


August 15: A Soyuz-2 rocket to launch Progress MS-28 from Baikonur toward the International Space Station, ISS. (As of 2014, the launch was panciled for July 1, but by the Fall of 2023, the launch drifted to Aug. 15, 2024.

The delivery of the spacecraft to Baikonur was reported on Nov. 29, 2023.


September 1: A Soyuz-2 rocket to launch the Bion-M No. 2 satellite. (In 2013, the launch was expected in 2016-2017, however by mid-2014 it was delayed to 2019. In 2015, the mission was re-scheduled for 2021 and by the end of 2018, it was postponed until 2023. The 2023 launch date was reconfirmed in 2019. By that time, it was postponed until 2024. By May 2024, the launch date slipped from August to September 1.


September 11: A Soyuz-2 rocket to launch a Soyuz MS-26 (Production No. 757) with a crew of three from Baikonur toward the International Space Station, ISS. (As of 2014)

In March 2023, Roskosmos reported that Sergei Kud-Sverchkov, Aleksei Zubritsky and Aleksandr Gorbunov were assigned to be a backup crew for Expedition 72, which included Sergei Ryzhikov and Mikaev. Kud-Sverchkov's crew was also expected to serve as a primary crew during the first Russian expedition to the ISS in 2025. On March 27, 2024, NASA publicly confirmed that its veteran astronaut Don Pettit will fly aboard Soyuz MS-26, as a member of ISS Expeditions 71 and 72.

After post-production tests in Korolev in the Fall of 2023, Soyuz MS-26 was shipped to Baikonur Cosmodrome on Dec. 18, 2023. It was unloaded at the processing site at Site 254 in Baikonur on Dec. 25, 2023.


November 5: A Soyuz-2-1b/Fregat rocket to launch a pair of Ionosfera-M satellites and a cluster of secondary payloads from Pad 1S in Vostochny. The launch was planned for Dec. 5, 2023, but in September 2023, it was pushed back until Dec. 10, 2023, at 02:18 Moscow Time, and to Dec 12, 2023. By November 2023, the mission was postponed until May 21, 2024, but by that time, the launch slipped to Nov. 5, 2024.


November 21: A Soyuz-2 rocket to launch Progress MS-29 from Baikonur toward the International Space Station, ISS. (As of 2014, the launch was projected for October 16.) The delivery of the spacecraft to Baikonur was reported on June 17, 2024.
