MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. The Express-AMU1 communications satellite has been put into calculated orbit, Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos told TASS.
"The apparatus has been put into calculated orbit," a Roscosmos spokesman said.

According to a TASS source in the rocket and space industry, the perigee and apogee of the satellite, that is the points closest and maximally distant from the center of the Earth on its orbit are within acceptable frames.
