We analyse the stability of the orbit of the artificial lunar satellite proposed in the «Ukrselena» project with respect to perturbing action of the Earth and the Sun. Some recommendations are made concerning the selection of the node longitude and time moment of the vehicle injection into the orbit relative to the mutual location of the Earth and the Moon.
