Russia Places New Military Satellite into Orbit

Pusk

The Russian military satellite was put into designated orbit by the Soyuz-2.1a space rocket on February 27. This was announced by Alexey Zolotukhin, a spokesman for the Aerospace Defence Forces.

The satellite separated from the rocket about 10 minutes after the launch at 14:01 from Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia’s Arkhangelsk Region. It was the first launch that took place at Plesetsk Cosmodrome this year.

“The stable telemetry communications have been established and are maintained with the satellite, while its onboard systems are operating normally,” the spokesman for the Aerospace Defence Forces pointed out.
