Are serial numbers of Soyuz and Fregat known?

According to the Russian launch schedule thread:

July 07 (188:xx:xx:xx.xxx) - Kosmos-2557 (Glonass-K №16L / Block K5s) - Soyuz-2-1b/Fregat-M (Я15000-056?/112-16?) – Plesetsk, 43/x
So, there is Fregat-M, not just Fregat.
The Russians apparently name as "Fregat" what RH names as "Fregat-M."  Apparently, if an identical stage was launched from Kourou atop a Soyuz-ST, then it was named "Fregat-M."

Clear as mud, yes?

Typically any Arianespace, Starsem and Glavkosmos commercial launch for Western customers uses the M, MT, SB et al designations regardless of launch site. Fregat sometimes depending upon year and source asked refers to the original version of Fregat whereas M stood for modified depending on the era.
A good breakdown.

MOSCOW, July 7 - RIA Novosti. The carrier rocket "Soyuz-2.1b" with the Russian navigation satellite "Glonass-K" was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region, the Russian Defense Ministry told reporters.

"On Thursday, July 7, at 12.18 Moscow time , a Soyuz-2.1b medium-class carrier rocket with a navigation spacecraft was successfully launched from the State Test Cosmodrome of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (Plesetsk Cosmodrome ) in the Arkhangelsk Region " Glonass -K", - noted in the military department.

As specified in the Ministry of Defense, all pre-launch operations and the launch of the rocket took place in the normal mode. The control of the launch and flight of the launch vehicle was carried out by means of the ground-based automated spacecraft control complex of the Russian orbital group.

GLONASS is one of the four systems created in the world, similar to the American GPS , the Chinese BeiDou and the European Galileo. The GLONASS system is of particular importance for the effective solution of the tasks of the Armed Forces. The signals of the system are used in high-precision weapons, unmanned aircraft, for the operational command and control of troops.

I believe they still have a ready to launch Glonass-M on ground, why have they launched the K version before the M version?
