Information about Russian satellites whose existence had not previously been public knowledge appeared on a public website in the .ru zone. RIA Novosti reported that a company called Saturn that produces satellite components contacted the press about the leak.
A presentation posted to the unnamed website named a series of satellites, described their operation timelines, and named multiple companies responsible for research and development projects related to Russian satellites.
The leaked information was first presented at a conference in Krasnodar. Saturn executive Sergey Likhonosov said the data was confidential and its publication was illegal. He did not specify where it had been published and said the company was taking “appropriate measures” against those who posted the presentation.
