MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian Emergencies Ministry specialists have found a fragment of the Russian Progress MS-04 cargo spacecraft in Siberia, a ministry representative told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

"Right now law enforcement members have organized the protection of the object until members of the Roscosmos [Russian space agency] arrive," the representative said.

According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, the Progress fragment was found about 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the city of Kyzyl.

On Thursday, Roscosmos confirmed the loss of Progress MS-04 space freighter after a faulty launch from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan.

The spacecraft was carrying more than 2.6 metric tons of food, fuel, and supplies for the Expedition 50 crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
