Kosmos 2175 (Russian: Космос-2175 meaning Cosmos 2175) was a Russian Yantar-4K2 photo reconnaissance satellite. It was the first satellite to be launched by the Russian Federation, following the breakup of the Soviet Union. It was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket, flying from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, on 21 January 1992.
It was the 63rd Yantar-4K2 satellite. Yantar-4K2 spacecraft are also designated Kobal't. Kosmos 2175 was deorbited, and recovered after atmospheric re-entry, on 20 March 1992, following a successful mission. Prior to this, two capsules had been returned with imagery aboard.
