This is presumably the 14S54 third stage (is that the right designation? The Blok-I, anyway).
Transfer orbit apogee was at 1325 UTC over the Antarctic; presumably the Volga burn began around that time.

That would be the "second stage" for this LV.

Soyuz-2.1v is a two stages launcher :

- Bloc A (14S55)
- Bloc I (14S54)

It carries also an upper stage :

- Volga (14S46)

Yes, second stage. I meant to say second stage. Hard habit to break, thinking of the Blok I as third stage all these years!

I've also seen '132KS' for the first stage? (maybe from Anatoly Zak?)

By the way it looks like catalog 39490 to 39494 have been reserved for 2013-78A to 78E, which
will be Aist, two spheres, the Blok I stage, and the Volga stage with attached adapter.

Wonder if they will catalog Volga which is supposed to re-enter over the South Pacific within a few hours (if that did not already happen)

Two references exists for 132КС as the 1st stage.

This Video only confirms the mission liftoff but no video of launch.

Just re-checking this, it appears that 131КС is for the whole Soyuz-2-1V, whilst 132КС is for something called Союз-2-1ВУ?
