According to a story in Kommersant (Apr 17, 2006), the military had to give their only Proton-K launcher to the civilians - it will be used for a launch of Kazakhstan's KazSat communication satellite in June 2006.

Kommersant reports that the Space Forces counted on this Proton-K to launch in 2006 a new US-KMO geostationary early-warning satellite to replace Cosmos-2379, which has been working on orbit since 2001. Now they will have to wait for a new Proton-K, so the repalcement launch will not take place until at least 2007.

Cosmos-2379, meanwhile, is alive and well, assisting two HEO early-warning satellites in their watch over the the U.S. ICBM fields and providing coverage of the North Atlantic.
