According to the Russian Space Forces, Cosmos-2422 reached its orbit at 09:16:25 (Moscow time) and was taken under control by the crews of the Main Space Systems Centre (GITsIU KS) at 09:52 (Moscow time).

Cosmos-2422 has now been deployed in an orbital plane that is between Cosmos-2388 and Cosmos-2393, two other US-KS satellites on highly-elliptical orbits.
The initial orbit of Cosmos-2422 is 62.85 degrees, orbital period is about 704 minutes. Apogee of the orbit is about 39,000 km, perigee -- 860 km.

The US-KS/Oko spacecrafts 50cm telescope can detect heat radiation from missiles. Kosmos-2422 also carries several smaller telescopes that most likely provide a wide-angle view of the Earth in infrared and visible parts of spectrum.
Cosmos-2422 will complement two US-KS satellites currently in orbit, Cosmos-2388 and Cosmos-2393, and the geostationary Cosmos-2379 of the US-KMO early-warning constellation.

The Molnia-M carrier rocket launch was conducted from the Plesetsk space centre at 8.20 a.m. Moscow time (4:20 a.m. GMT) Friday and the rocket delivered the Cosmos satellite into its designated orbit at 9.16 a.m. Moscow time (5:16 a.m. GMT).
Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov said in March that the Russian orbital group consisted of 96 satellites, of which 59 are used for military purposes.
The four-stage medium-range Molnia-M, which has a lift-off weight of 305 metric tons, is believed to be one of the most reliable in the world and is used for launching spacecraft of up to two metric tons into high-elliptical orbits.
Russia has launched 220 Molnia-M carrier rockets from the Plesetsk space centre since 1970.
