On Thursday, November 25, at 04.09 a.m. from the State Test Cosmodrome of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (Plesetsk cosmodrome) in the Arkhangelsk Region, a combat crew of the Space Forces of the Aerospace Forces successfully launched a medium-class carrier rocket “Soyuz-2.1B” with a spacecraft in the interests of Ministry of Defense of Russia.

All prelaunch operations and the launch of the Soyuz-2.1B space rocket (ILV) took place in the normal mode. The means of the ground-based automated control complex for spacecraft of the Russian orbital group monitored the launch and flight of the ILV.

Two minutes after the launch, the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle was accepted for escort by ground control facilities at the Herman Titov Main Testing Space Center.

The launch of the spacecraft into the calculated orbit by the Fregat upper stage will take several hours.

In total, more than 40 ground-based measuring devices and over 70 combat crews of the 15th Army of the Aerospace Special Forces were involved in ensuring the launch of the spacecraft of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
