It is a repurposed ICBM. The Rockot is a repurposed UR-100 ICBM (SS-19 Stiletto for NATO), with a Briz-KM upper stage.

Launched last week, Europe’s Sentinel-5P satellite – the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring the air we breathe – is in excellent health.
The 820 kg satellite was lofted into orbit from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia last Friday on a Rockot.
