"Nearest Russian space launches: Glonass-K - end of August or beginning of September (according to RIA Novosti), three Gontsa-M with companions - September 29 (according to TASS)"

I think ISS Reshetnev would write if Glonass-K was ready and shipped to Plesetsk.
So far there is no information on the homepage. So wait and see.

Main points from this video:
* there are 9 Glonass-K in works;
* one of them passed all the tests and will be shipped to Plesetsk in near future;
* the other eight satellites are in various phases of manufacturing.
* at least one more sat is fully assembled and goes through tests.

The satellites look to be rectangular in shape.

Satellite "Glonass-K": preparation for launch

The company "Information Satellite Systems" named after Academician MF Reshetnev "has completed the creation of a new navigation spacecraft" Glonass-K ".

The new "Glonass-K" was manufactured taking into account the flight tests of the previous two vehicles of this series, and the share of domestic components has been increased in its composition.

All ground tests were carried out with the satellite, as a result of which its characteristics and readiness to perform the target functions were confirmed.

The spacecraft has already been delivered to the Plesetsk cosmodrome. In the near future, work will begin with him on preparations for launch.

Glonass-K is a new generation spacecraft. It is based on the unpressurized Express-1000K platform developed by ISS. The satellite's mass is 935 kg, the guaranteed service life in orbit is 10 years. In addition to navigation signals, Glonass-K transmits information from the international search and rescue system for people in distress, COSPAS-SARSAT.

Replenishment of the orbital constellation with spacecraft of this series will increase the accuracy of navigation determinations of the GLONASS system.

October 25th from 18:30 UTC. Is that correct?
The satellite should arrive roughly in plane 2 at slot 10,estimated.  (723 without guarantee)
I can't calculate that correctly.

This is obviously "the new information channel" from ISS Reshetnev.  ???
There are regular videos on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/tvrazvitie
about all sorts of things in the company.
At the bottom there is often a ticker with information like this one for the Glonass launch.
The content of the video rarely has anything to do with it.
