Hi Nick,

Thanks for sharing this video!

Jonathan McDowell mentioned on twitter that the Angara AM launch
performed a de-orbit burn that may have been visible from Europe. See
his tweet at https://twitter.com/planet4589/status/1520284820450025472

The time and direction of motion that you mention seem to match this trajectory.

Regards,
    Cees
