The responsibility for the fall of the upper stage «Fregat» with 19 satellites should occur in case of detection of the professional community of the causes of abnormal situations and establish the actions that led to it, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

Rocket «Soyuz-2.1 b» with the upper stage «Fregat» and 19 satellites launched in 8.41 MSK and staff has reached an intermediate orbit. Later Roscosmos reported that communication with the satellite «meteor-M» №2-1, which was supposed to separate first, the install failed because the device is missing on the target orbit, and then confirmed the collapse of the upper stage with the satellites into the ocean. On the eve of the state Corporation Commission to establish the causes of the accident under the guidance of the Deputy Director, the Institute completed its work.

«If for emergencies, as the Russians say, an accident resulting mistakes or any wrong action, then, of course, the responsibility someone has to bear,» — said Peskov told reporters.

He noted that there was insufficient information in the report, but stressed the irrelevance of the Amateur or bureaucratic opinions on this issue — «the judgment must be professional.»

Peskov said that the responsibility «depends on what was the real cause».

«And, well, is there any consensus on those reasons or is not available among the experts in the first place, because, of course, there are some Amateur conclusions are unlikely to be applied, after all this high-tech region»,- said the press Secretary of the President.

Peskov noted that so far had not had time to get acquainted with the Commission’s conclusion, «therefore it would be wrong to say something». «But obviously, if there was an emergency situation, it means that something went wrong. Of course, there has to be some kind of glitch and some incorrect actions that led to this crash,» said he.
