Coordinates of KY are 48°31'N 45°48'E. Some Kosmos saellites lauched from
that site have 51 deg. inclination orbits. GTherefor lauches toward the
ISS are possible. But in the future, Russians want to build another space
station with an orbit with greater inclination (for remote sensing).
Therefore Plesetsk in not completely out of play.
