“The physical separation of the ship and the station occurred at 13:25 Moscow time,” a spokesman said.

It is noted that the ship’s engines will be switched on for braking at 16:39 Moscow time, after which the Progress will enter the dense layers of the atmosphere and most of its structure will burn out.

Earlier it became known that the launch of the Russian cargo ship Progress MS-13 was postponed from December 1 to December 6 in connection with the replacement of the onboard cable. This is stated in a message on the website of Roscosmos.

It is noted that the RSC Energia specialists during the pre-flight preparation of the cargo ship at the Baikonur Cosmodrome revealed a “remark on the onboard cable”. In "Roskosmos" added that "the discrepancy was eliminated after replacing the cable."
