According to a spokesman for Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces, Russian military satellite has reached its designated orbit and established stable contact with ground control services.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) A Russian military satellite has reached its designated orbit and established stable contact with ground control services, a spokesman for Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

The satellite was launched earlier on Tuesday on board a Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket from the Plesetsk space center in northern Russia.

"The telemetry link with the satellite has been established and maintained. All on-board systems are performing normally," Col. Dmitry Zenin said.

The satellite, designated Kosmos-2506, is believed to be part of the Russian optical reconnaissance satellite network.
