Back in the good old Cold War days Tass used to report Kosmos numbers and orbital perimeters!

Payload separation from Volga has yet to occur but is coming up on the timeline.

The Nivelir project reaches launch pad?

The Russian government has released very little information about the upcoming flight, but it appears that it might be carrying the first of several 14F150 Napryazhenie geodetic satellites developed within the Nivelir-ZU project. The Russian word "napryazhenie" stands for voltage, while "nivelir" means level.

The rocket to be shipped was to have the same factory serial number of 3/138, so both should have the same tail number.

Rather than being called Napryazhenie No. 1? Anatoly's page seemed to imply Nivelir-ZU is the broader project
and the satellite is Napryazhenie.
Any indication of Volga serial number?

No photographic evidence of serial but Stan might know.

The press service of the Ministry of Defence describes the payload as follows :

"The satellite is a space platform on which several types of payloads can be installed. The payload [for this mission] is equipment for remote sensing of the Earth and equipment to photograph objects in space".

While "remote sensing" may still be consistent with a geodetic mission, photographing objects in space clearly is not.
