This page discusses the arrival of the Baumanets spacecraft at
Baikonur on June 3, but the spacecraft pictured seems a lot bigger
than the 92 kg microsatellite that the Bauman institute produced. I
believe that these photos are of the Belka satellite, produced by RSC
Energia on behalf of the Belarus space agency. Belka is based on a
subset of the Yamal bus.
