In accordance with the mission plan of the International Space Station (ISS) and Russian commitments under this international project, a manned transportation spacecraft Soyuz TMA-12M was launched from Baikonur launch site at 01:17:23 Moscow Time.

The objective of the launch is to deliver to the station a crew of three in order to bring the crew of the Expedition ISS-39 up to six.

The crew of Soyuz TMA-12M consists of: Russian cosmonauts A. Skvortsov (the spacecraft commander) and O. Artemyev (flight engineer), US astronaut S. Swanson (flight engineer-2).

The spacecraft was put into a parking low-Earth orbit with the following parameters: 51.67° inclination , 199.58 km minimal altitude, 261.79 km maximum altitude, 88.81 minutes orbital period.

The onboard systems of the spacecraft operate normally.

At the launch site, the spacecraft prelaunch processing and launch were performed under the direction of the State Commission for Flight Testing of Manned Space Systems (chaired by the head of Roscosmos O.N. Ostapenko). The Commission was basing its decisions to proceed with each next step in processing and launching on the final report of the Technical Management for Flight Tests of Manned Space Systems headed by the President of RSC Energia, Designer General V.A. Lopota.

According to the telemetry data and reports from the crew of ISS, the space station systems operate normally. The station is ready for docking with the spacecraft.
