From the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur region launched the Soyuz-2.1b booster rocket. This launch was the first 2019 year and the fifth - in the history of the East. The Soyuz has already entered an open-ended near-earth orbit.

The launch vehicle will deliver a meteorological spacecraft Meteor-M No. 2-2 and 32 satellites, including three Russian ones - Socrates, VDNH-80 and AmurSat. The rest belong to customers from 11 countries, including the UK, Germany, Israel, the USA and France.

The launch of the "Union" followed 25 tourists - local residents, as well as guests from Vladivostok and Irkutsk. They were about four kilometers from the launch site. To get so close to the cosmodrome, they had applied to Roskosmos in advance.
