VOSTOCHNY COSMODROME, November 28. /TASS/. The satellite Meteor, launched from the Vostochny spaceport on Tuesday, is absent from the designated orbit and there is no contact with it, the Roscosmos corporation has said.

"The first scheduled communication session has failed to establish contact with the satellite due to its absence from the designated orbit," the corporation’s spokesman said. "Analysis of the current situation is underway."

A Soyuz-2.1b rocket blasted off from the Vostochny cosmodrome at 08:41 Moscow time with 19 space satellites on board. The hydrometeorological satellite Meteor-M N. 2-1 was the main payload. The rocket also carried 18 smaller satellites.

Roscosmos said "the Soyuz 2.1b rocket put the booster Fregat and space satellite Meteor-M in the designated intermediate orbit."
