The launch of the rocket and the spacecraft into the calculated orbit took place normally.

Two minutes after the launch, the “Soyuz-2.1b” launch vehicle was accepted for control by the ground-based automated control complex of the Main Test Space Center.

At the estimated time, the spacecraft was launched into the target orbit and taken into control by the ground-based means of the aerospace forces.

A stable telemetric communication has been established with the satellite, its on-board systems are functioning normally.

This is the fourth launch of the “Soyuz-2” launch vehicle from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in 2019.

Flight tests of the “Soyuz-2” space rocket complex began at the Plesetsk cosmodrome on November 8, 2004.
