The Volga block, after launching vehicles from Plesetsk, was taken to the burial orbit

The specialists sent the Volga launch unit into the burial orbit, delivering four spacecraft to the calculated orbits. About it reports TASS with reference to the Ministry of Defense of Russia.


“The specialists of the Main Testing Center named after G. Titov conducted operations to remove the Volga launch unit from the orbit of the spacecraft,” the text says.

As explained in the defense ministry, the withdrawal of the unit was carried out due to three inclusions of the propulsion system.
