Russian Luna-25 (Luna-Glob 1) mission previously scheduled for launch in 2015 was postponed until 2016, according to Lev Zeleny, director of Space Research Institute. This will be a lunar lander technology demonstration mission. As a consequence, the launch schedule of the following lunar missions has changed too: Luna-26 will be sent to the Moon in 2018 and Luna-27 in 2019. (via Novosti Kosmonavtiki)
