A Proton-M booster rocket launched
Monday failed to place two communications satellites into target
orbits, a mishap that followed several other botched launches. An
official investigation is under way.

Medvedev said Thursday the
failure could have been caused by “traditional sloppiness.” He says he
will chair a government meeting next week to look into the case and name
those responsible for the failure.

“We can’t tolerate that any
longer,” Medvedev said at the start of a Cabinet session. “We are losing
our prestige and billions of rubles.”
