MOSCOW (ISC Kosmotras PR) — This is to inform our current and potential customers that publications in the Russian press in February 2015 about the Dnepr Program suspension are not reflecting the reality. All ISC Kosmotras activities are on track to fulfill our contractual obligations.

ISC Kosmotras recognizes that such publications have caused many concerns and confusion but were unfortunately out of our control. We can only apologize for that.
