MOSCOW, September 12 (RIA Novosti) - Russian reconnaissance satellite Kosmos-2495 reentered the atmosphere and crashed last week, a spokesman for the US Strategic Command told RIA Novosti on Friday.

"US Strategic Command's Joint Functional Component Command for Space [JFCC Space] through the Joint Space Operations Center [JSpOC] assesses with high confidence that Kosmos-2495 reentered the atmosphere and was removed from the US satellite catalog as a decayed object on September 3," the spokesman said.

The Russian Defense Ministry has previously denied media reports of a Russian military satellite, allegedly exploded above the United States. The Kosmos-2495 was launched on May 6, 2014.
