Amazing the details cameras pick up these days. Notice the group of individuals, perhaps leaving to go to the pub, with one solitary person left behind behind looking board and playing on their mobile.

January 23, 2018 at the cosmodrome EASTERN specialists of the companies of Roscosmos completed the assembly of the space head of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket. In the assembly and testing building of space vehicles, the head fairing was swept to the Fregat upper stage with the spacecraft "Kanopus-V" No. 3 and No. 4 and satellites of the associated payload.

The images of the payload stack show (at least) 3 dummy payloads (2 larger identical cube shaped and a smaller one on the left side). Apparently there were some satellites de-manifested from this launch.

    02:16:12 - 02:17:07 - Frigate 1st burn
    03:03:10 - 03:04:35 - Frigate 2nd burn (entering orbit for the separation of Kanopus-V)
    03:06:15 - 03:12:05 - Separation of Kanopus-V No. 3 and 4
    03:43:58 - 03:45:05 - Frigate 3rd burn

Would the 5th and 6th burns be to reach orbit for one of the de-manifested payloads?

Vostochny Cosmodrome's Site 1S was looking great from the orbit of #DEIMOS2  this morning! Good luck @roscosmos for tomorrow's launch of #Soyuz with #Kanopus-V 3 and 4
