A Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle with the Fregat upper stage lifted off from the VOSTOCHNY Cosmodrome. The launch mission is to deliver an Earth observation Meteor-M № 2-1 satellite into the solar-synchronous orbit.

According the flight program, the first three stages of Soyuz-2.1b have taken the ascent unit into the specified intermediate orbit. However, during the first planned communication session with the satellite, it was not possible to establish a connection due to its absence in the target orbit. Currently, the information is being analyzed.
