Following the discovery announced in ATel #4459 we have obtained spectrum of Supernova in NGC 2857 (PSN J09243795+4921320) now known as SN 2012fg (ATel #4466, CBET #3253). The spectrum has been taken with the SCORPIO spectrograph of the 6-meter Russian telescope on 2012 Oct. 15.007 UT. Spectral resolution was 6 A, spectral range 3800 - 8000 A. The spectrum is blue, a narrow H-alpha emission is detected at a redshift z=0.01624 coinciding with the NGC 2857 redshift as it was already found in ATel #4466 and CBET #3253. We have discovered broad and shallow absorption H Balmer lines, He I 5876 A and, possibly, Fe II 5169 A line. We have measured blue edges of the broad absorption lines relatively the NGC 2857 redshift (expansion velocity of the Supernova): -14800 km/s in H-gamma and H-beta, -13700 km/s in H-alpha and He I.
