“Russia’s orbiting cluster is operating a regular regime and is permanently monitored by space control facilities of the aerospace defense,” Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov told journalists on Tuesday. “One can only guess about the condition representatives of the so-called American Meteor Society were in when they identified a luminescent phenomenon high up in the sky as a Russian military satellite.”
He said that most probably such reports could be explained by the US security services’ attempts to find whereabouts of a space object they had lost.
On Tuesday, a number of Russian mass media cited US information resources reporting that Russia’s military camera carrying satellite Cosmos-2495 that had been put into orbit in May allegedly exploded when it was over the United States’ territory. Media said the incident had taken place on September 2 over the States of Colorado and Wyoming. The American Meteor Society cited reports of more than 30 eyewitnesses.
