Part of the carrier rocket «Soyuz-2.1 b» fell in scheduled areas, said Konstantin Chmarov, the Director of the branch of Corporation «Rosatom».

In an interview with the portal of the Annunciation «Amur.info» Chmarov confirmed that fragments of the rocket are in the waters of the Atlantic ocean. Its component parts (steps, sides. fairing) landed at the scheduled territories in the Zeya district of the Amur region and in two districts of Yakutia.

«But the location of the space head part (the upper stage «Fregat» — approx. ed.) — the upper stage and spacecraft — causing issues, noted Chmarov.- The first obvious assumption is that part of the spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere». According to the official, at this rate, «it is impossible to enter the atmosphere and remain monolithic piece.» «There is dissipation… but dust and small fragments, nothing settles», — he explained.

Tuesday was the second in the history of the rocket from the cosmodrome East. The start was normal, but it later emerged that nearly two dozen satellites, including the «meteor-M» did not enter the target orbit. The failure could occur during operation of the booster unit. The state Commission formed to investigate the incident.
