Then, in offline mode, the ship continued orbital flight.

In accordance with the flight program on the same day at 16:39 (Moscow time), the engine system was turned on for braking, and the spacecraft proceeded to decrease from the working orbit.

At 17:11 (Moscow time), the ship entered the dense layers of the atmosphere, and at 17:19 (Moscow time) fireproof fragments of the structure sank in a non-navigable region of the Pacific Ocean.
