There is viewed the problem of reduction of controllability of spacecraft due to increase of inertia moment of spacecraft during conducting of active control over microacceleration level on the operational stage. Additional fuel stores, which are necessary for realization of spacecraft orbital orientation, are estimated. Recommendations to reduce influence of the phenomenon on effective running of system for orientation and control of spacecraft motion are given.
