Russia will release two more Peruvian satellites into space, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced.

NOVO-OGARYOVO, November 7 (RIA Novosti) – Russia will take two small Peruvian satellites into orbit, President Vladimir Putin told reporters after talks with his Peruvian counterpart Ollanta Humala.

“With the participation of Russian specialists, Peru’s first microsatellite Chasqui-1 was put into orbit. Two more small satellites are to follow,” he said.

Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev launched Chasqui-1 by hand during a spacewalk on August 18. The tiny satellite, weighting one kilogram (2.2 pounds), was designed by students to take pictures of the earth and transmit them to a ground station using amateur radio frequencies.

Artemyev was joined by Alexander Skvortsov who took photos of the Chasqui-1 release.

Peruvian space agency CONIDA was established in 1974. Russia launched the first two satellites constructed completely in Peru in November 2013.
