What kind of coverage can we expect in the Russian media?

Why should the Russians broadcast the launch of a photoreconnaissance satellite "live".   In the West we seem to have the idea that every launch should be broadcast live, but there is now law that such a thing should happen.

I am still staggered at the openness of the Russian (and Chinese) programmes these days.

Usually MoD press releases and TV news reports post-launch with reporters reporting from the launch site.  :)

Note that this one don't have an upper stage so that spysat should be in orbit within 10 minutes of being launched.

Thank you! I was looking for these footage!

I'll be writing up a short one, as we've got that nice overview of the LV and I can probably put about three paras together on the spy sat.

I think the openness is even very limited in the West - remember the live broadcast of (U.S.) NRO missions were generally cut off after 10 mins of ignition.

I note none of the news stories give a Kosmos name - presumably this will be designated Kosmos-2486 eventually

Thanks.

The Soyuz looked to be sporting a particularly large fairing on this launch, is it a new model of fairing for the Soyuz-2-1B?

Quote
The Interfax news agency the quoted the same official as saying that the Titov Chief Test center was in control of the satellite officially designated Kosmos-2486 and the spacecraft maintained telemetry communications with the ground and all onboard systems were functioning normally.

Quoted for the Kosmos designation.
