The results of observations of large-scale (about 2000 km) disturbances in the ionosphere which arose during launching and flight of rockets «Soyuz» are presented. It is important that one of the rockets was launched on magnetically quiet day and another rocket was launched on magnetically disturbed day. It is confirmed what even a moderate magnetic storm can strongly mask ionospheric effects of rocket launchings. We found delay times and speeds of waves which are responsible for carry of disturbances. Our results are in good agreement with results of our earlier researches.
