MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. Russia’s upper state booster Volga has put into designated orbit two spacecraft of the Defence Ministry launched atop an advanced Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Plesetsk spaceport located in the Russian north-western Arkhangelsk region on Saturday
‘The Souyz-2.1b rocket launched from the Plesetsk space port at 5.09 p.m. Moscow time (2.09 p.m. GMT) successfully put into targeted orbit two spacecraft in the interests of the Russian Defence Ministry," the ministry’s press service told TASS.
The Soyuz-2.1b carrier was launched in a routine mode and the satellites reached their targeted orbit normally, the press service said.
The lift-off was second for the two-stage light class carrier rocket Soyuz-2.1b after the first successful launch in December, 2013. The rocket is flight tested at the Plesetsk spaceport.
