Soyuz launch with British satellites postponed

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the British communications satellites OneWeb, which was scheduled for August 5, has been postponed.

According to a source in the rocket-comic field, now the delivery of 34 OneWeb satellites to Baikonul is scheduled for July 28, and the start itself is for August 20-21. At the same time, on some British devices, low-quality components will have to be replaced.
