On 4 July, contact was lost with the Express MD-1 communications spacecraft disrupting coverage of four main Russian television channels to parts of Russia. The cause was reported by the Russian government to be due to faulty orientation of the satellite’s antennas. Engineers are working to recover the spacecraft.
