The Soyuz 2-1B carrier rocket with the Resurs-P No.3 remote-sensing satellite was successfully launched from Baikonur on Sunday, which was the second attempt, a spokesman to the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos told RIA Novosti.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, an automatic engine cutoff cancelled the launch of the Russian Soyuz 2-1B rocket carrier from Baikonur. After that, the launch was postponed to Sunday evening, with no changes introduced into the schedule of other Soyuz launches.

"The carrier rocket Soyuz-2-1B was launched at the scheduled time — 9:56 p.m. Moscow time [18:56 GMT]," the spokesman said.
