That V shaped structure emanating from the glowing reflection swings through several times just before the Earths horizon.
The camera may be mounted on a pod and appears to be just rotating around the axis of that pod.
1. The V shaped structure is not attached to the Earth
2. The V shaped structure does appear to connect at the glowing reflection of the pod skin.
Satellites usually spin in orbit anyways to provide things like thermal equalization.
If you want a camera to focus on the Earth it needs to counter that spin while it is photographing.

There was the decoration for the May,9th Russian victory party in it.
The cargo ship also is delivering a copy of the Banner of Victory, the banner raised over the Reichstag in Berlin by victorious Soviet soldiers in 1945.
