On November 30, 2018 at 05:27 MSK (02:27 UTC) the Air and Space Forces conducted a successful launch of a Rockot space launcher with Briz-KM booster stage from the launch pad No. 3 of the launch complex No. 133 of the Plesetsk test site. The three spacecraft delivered into orbit are military communication satellites of the Strela-3M/Rodnik type. In addition to the three satellites, the launcher appears to have placed an additional object to the orbit.

The Rodnik satellites received designations Cosmos-2530, Cosmos-2531, and Cosmos-2532 and international designations 2018-097A, 2018-097B, and 2018-097C. They are registered by NORAD as 43751, 43752, and 43753.

Previous launch of Rodnik-type satellites took place in September 2015. It also used the Rockot launcher, which is a converted UR-100NUTTH ICBM.

In the past, launches of the Rodnik-type satellites also delivered into orbit a small payload, unannounced at the time of the launch. This is what apparently happened this time as well - NORAD registered an additional object, 2018-097D/43754 (2018-097E is the booster).

UPDATE: This payload is reported to be a dummy satellite that took place of the Blits-M satellite that wasn't ready to launch.
