The Volga upper stage has separated ! Everything is fine. Payload separation should occur within about 1,5 hour.

Tremendous! A new LV is born!

1810th launch of a Soyuz-class rocket !
Well technically this one is not of a Soyuz-class (Soyuz-class being medium-lift). it would be more apropriate to say it's from Soyuz-family.
