the 2.1B is not yet delivered

and the 2.1A is now just a "dry-run" transportation to the launch pad

Four S-Net nanosatellites of the Technical University Berlin are also on board of this flight to test inter-satellite communications in S-band.

Do we know if either Kanopus-V #3 or #4 are meant to replace Kanopus-V #1, creating a 2-satellite constellation?

Or are they both meant to augment the preceding satellite's capability, creating a 3-satellite constellation?

Four satellites?

In April 2013, the Belorussian press reported that two Russian and one Belorussian satellites would be added into the Kanopus network.
(This is after the July 2012 launch of Kanopus-V #1.)

Pardon for the Captain Obvious nature of the post, but I guess that this launch will be delayed while the apparent Fregat stage failure on the Meteor-M No. 2-1 launch is investigated.
