The 11A511U-FG Soyuz-FG launch vehicle for the Soyuz TMA-06M launch, arrived to Baykonur on March 4th: http://www.roscosmos.ru/main.php?id=2&nid=18760 (in Russian).

So where is the rocket for TMA-05M?

That was scheduled for February-March delivery?

I am sure that it is mistake. The Soyuz-FG rocket that was delivered on Baikonur cosmodrome yesterday is rocket with #042 for Soyuz TMA-05M launch, not for Soyuz TMA-06M.

MEDIA ADVISORY: M12-117

NASA ASTRONAUT AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEWS BEFORE STATION FLIGHT

HOUSTON -- NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, making final preparations
for a July launch to the International Space Station, will be
available for live satellite interviews from 6 to 7 a.m. CDT Tuesday,
June 26. The interviews will originate from Moscow and will be
preceded at 5:30 a.m. by a feed of video documenting Williams'
mission training.

Williams, a record-setting astronaut who lived and worked aboard the
space station for six months in 2006, will be a flight engineer on
the station's Expedition 32 crew. She will become commander of
Expedition 33. Williams is scheduled to launch at 9:40 p.m. CDT July
14 (8:40 a.m. July 15 Baikonur time) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in
Kazakhstan with Flight Engineers Yuri Malenchenko of the Russian
Federal Space Agency and Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace
Exploration Agency.

Williams is a native of Needham, Mass., and a 1987 graduate of the
U.S. Naval Academy. After earning her commission, Williams served in
various roles as a Navy officer before being selected as an astronaut
candidate by NASA in 1998. She received a master's degree from the
Florida Institute of Technology in 1995.

Williams and her colleagues will be aboard the station during an
exceptionally busy period that includes two spacewalks, the arrival
of Japanese, U.S. commercial and Russian resupply vehicles, and an
increasingly faster pace of scientific research.

To arrange an interview, news media representatives must contact Karen
Svetaka at 281-483-8684 or karen.a.svetaka@nasa.gov by 2 p.m. Monday,
June 25.

The NASA Live Interview Media Service (LIMS) satellite will be used
for the interviews. LIMS satellite parameters will be provided by
NASA to confirmed clients closer to the event.
