Apparently without any orbit-changing maneuvers performed (including the
initial two pre-programmed ones), it happened during the second orbit.

both discuss the video as real. The second link goes into more detail
about when and how it was received. On the SeeSat mailing list, Ted
Molczan has calculated a preliminary decay time of between 7 and 9 AM
UTC tomorrow (April 29), though it's not clear to me if that's based on
the initial, apparently too low, perigee reported. See the
spaceflight101.com link for a discussion of the Progress M-27M orbit,
which indicates a potential launcher issue.
