Space forces launched military satellites from Plesetsk
The massive Soyuz-2 rocket lifted off to the skies above Arctic Russia early morning on Friday, the Defense Ministry informed to newspaper Izvestia.
In a northeast direction, the rocket placed military satellites into orbit.
The launch is the fourth in the course of the last 12 months.
Plesetsk is the main Cosmodrome in Russia and is located some 200 kilometers south of Arkhangelsk. In addition to satellite launches, the cosmodrome is also key in testing Russia’s land-based ballistic nuclear missiles.
