We present the spatial distribution of unguided objects in the zone of geosynchronous satellites, distribution of orbital elements for these objects, and distribution of parameters of relative motion at their rendezvous with controlled geostationary satellites. The probabilities of collision between unguided objects as well as of their collision with controlled geostationary satellites are studied.
