It says

Roscosmos confirmed all the maneuvers occurred according to plan, and announced the “complicated” flight was a complete success.

So It and other stuff. are in orbit and deployed.

 From this article,,
 it looks
 like Mayak was probably dispensed into
 a 584 km x 604 km orbit at 97.61
 degrees inclination. I do not know if
 it successfully deployed, or if the
 reflector is stuck in the cubesat, or
 if it exploded into a million mylar
 pieces which might still be visible.
