The rocket took off with a Progress MS-10 spacecraft at 18:14 GMT (00:14 local time) carrying supplies to the International Space Station (ISS), Reuters reported.
The Progress MS-10 is expected to dock at the ISS on November 18, Russia’s space agency said.
The last manned mission to the ISS was abruptly cut short on October 11 two minutes after liftoff when the Soyuz-FG rocket failed, forcing a Russian cosmonaut and US astronaut to perform an emergency landing.
The rocket failure was caused by a sensor that was damaged during assembly at the Soviet era-cosmodrome at Baikonur, according to Russian investigators.
The first manned mission to the ISS since the failure is due to take off at the beginning of December.
