That time, the rocket was forced to make an emergency landing two minutes after take-off because a sensor had been damaged while it was being built. The system detached a capsule with the crew from the rocket and sent it back down to the ground on a severe ballistic trajectory.

It landed hundreds of kilometres north-east of the Baikanour launch site, sparking a major rescue mission.

Speaking at a news conference in Baikonur, Ovchinin said a small fault had been discovered in their Soyuz-FG launch vehicle on Tuesday, but had been fixed. As a result, some components had needed to be replaced.
