PLESETSK, Arkhangelsk region, June 7 (Itar-Tass) - A Soyuz-2.1b medium-class carrier rocket has put in orbit a Russian defence ministry’s satellite.

“The spacecraft separated from the booster rocket in a routine mode. The satellite has been put in orbit,” spokesman for the Russian defence ministry’s space defence forces Dmitry Zenin told journalists.

The launch vehicle with a defence satellite was blasted off from the Plesetsk space center’s 43th pad at 22:37 Moscow time on Friday. Several minutes after the launch it was taken under guidance of the Titov main test space centre. The spacecraft will be taken under control by the land-based automated mission control center at 00:13 a.m. Moscow time when it is in the radio coverage zone.
