  Launch off until April 10.

  Unclear what the reason means:

  "The inappropriate operation [of the system] was exposed in pre-flight testing at the Baikonur spaceport's technical complex," the agency said. 

  "A faulty condenser caused the inappropriate operation of the Kvant-V radio link and control system."
