MOSCOW, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Air and Space Defense (ASD) troops have dismissed reports of an explosion of the spacecraft Cosmos-2495 over the US territory.
"All spacecraft of Russia's orbital group are functioning in designated orbits in established modes and are steadily monitored by ground means of the space monitoring system of the Main Space Situation Exploration Center of the ASD Space Command. There are no malfunctions or deviations in the standard operation of Russian spacecraft," Colonel Alexey Zolotukhin, ASD spokesman, told ITAR-TASS.
"Statements by a spokesman for the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces about an alleged fact of a Russian spacecraft exploding, the Cosmos-2495, over the US territory was yet another attempt at finding out the position of a Russian space object lost by them," Zolotukhin added.
Zolotukhin recalled that the Main Space Situation Exploration Center maintains a global monitoring not only of Russian satellites but also of all space objects of artificial origin, including foreign ones, at altitudes from 120km to 40,000km with a continuous verification of information about them.
