    MOSCOW, NOVEMBER 26. /RIA NOVOSTI / -- The press service of the Russian Space
    Troops has rejected the information that the Russian satellite Kosmos-2399 has
    failed and "fallen apart". This information "is not true to fact", says the
    press service in the communique circulated on Wednesday.
    The satellite was launched from the Baikonur space port last August.
    "The press service of the Space Troops has been authorised officially to declare
    that, following correction work, the spacecraft is functioning and performing
    missions as designed within the Russian orbital group", reads the communique.
