MOSCOW, March 24, /ITAR-TASS/. The Soyuz-2.1b rocket with a Glonass-M navigation satellite has been launched from Plesetsk spaceport on Monday, Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin, a spokesman for the Air and Space Defence Forces (VKO) in the RF Defence Ministry's press service, told Itar-Tass.
"At 02.54, Moscow time, VKO crews successfully launched the Soyuz-2.1b rocket with a Glonass-M spacecraft," Zolotukhin specified.
The GLONASS system is intended for operational navigation-and-timing support to an unlimited number of land-, sea-, air-, and space-based users. Access to GLONASS civilian signals at any point of the globe is provided, by a decree of the RF President, for Russian and foreign users free of charge and without limitations.
