The influence of returning of unguided geosynchronous object orbits in the equator plane on hazard of collision on geostationary orbit is studied. For small inclinations of the orbits of the most dangerous unguided objects, the probability of collision can increase by three to six times, but it remains very small. The distribution with the of dangerous segments of a geostationary orbit longitude is given and its periodicity for large time intervals is established. The hazard of collision can change its value twice with the longitude.
