A launch of a Russian Earth resource satellite was aborted today at T -0.
The information at the link suggests they will be able to try again when the launch window opens again tomorrow. This kind of launch abort is a rare thing for the Russians. Usually they scrub much earlier, or launch.
Update: As expected they successfully launched today, Sunday, with no problems.
