At 0021 GMT on 7 February 2015, a Soyuz 2-1b/Fregat M was launched from the Plesetsk launch site in Northern Russia.  Aboard the rocket was a Glonass M51, more formally known as Cosmos 2514, which is a navigation satellite on its way to a Medium Earth Orbit with parameters 19,132 km x 19,158 km x 64.8 degrees inclination.

Meantime, Plesetsk will be losing one of its launch vehicles. It has been confirmed that only two more Rockot (Rokot) missions will be flown.
