The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the space “truck” was carried out from site No. 31 of the Baikonur cosmodrome at 17:26:21 Moscow time, and after 8 minutes 49 seconds, the spacecraft separated from the third stage of the carrier. The flight took place according to an ultrashort two-turn scheme.

The device delivered cargoes on the station with a total weight of more than 2.5 tons . These are fuel components, oxygen, medical supplies, containers with food and water, consumables and parcels for the crew. The equipment for carrying out the following scientific experiments is also on board: “Correction”, “Pilot-T”, “Aseptic”, “Biomag-M”, “Constant-2”, “Test”, “Endurance”, “Separation”.
After the completion of the necessary checks, Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner will carry out the final operations to dismantle the docking mechanism, transfer the Progress power supply system to a combined power supply and mothballing the spacecraft.
