Per the link below the table lists the Blok DM-03 Phase I Variant I original assignments and the reassignments from the cancelled Glonass-M triplet
and other launches and those that are now unassigned. Blok DM-03 Phase IIa (Baikonur only) will tentatively debut following the completion of the Blok DM-03 Phase I Variant I order assignments. Note that Blok DM-03 Phase IIa stages are as far as I can find unassigned.

CAS500-2 will be launched together with SNIPE around June 2022.

State research body unveils real flight model of home-made nanosatellites [dated Dec. 16, 2021]

Quote
After five years of development, South Korea's state space research body has unveiled the real flight model of four homemade nanosatellites weighing less than 10 kilograms that will be launched in 2022 to observe changes in space weather through formation flight.

The flight model called SNIPE was disclosed by the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) on December 15.

<snip>

KASI's nanosatellites will be launched on the Russian Soyuz-2 rocket at the Baikonur launch site in Kazakhstan around June 2022. Their mission is to precisely observe the microstructure of cosmic plasma distribution and the space environment in low orbit through a formation flight that can control the distance between satellites.

2020 COSPAR National Report of Republic of Korea [dated Dec. 2020]

Quote
Work on SNIPE began in January 2017. Phase A (System Design) was completed by October 2017, Phase B (Critical Design) by November 2019. The mission is currently in Phase C (Integration), awaiting launch from Baikonur on a Russian Soyuz-2 rocket as a secondary payload to the primary Korean Compact Advanced Satellite (CAS500-2) mission.

Not sure if this belongs in this thread, but Roscosmos has published a list of all Russian civilian and dual civilian/military satellites operational as of January 1 this year. This was posted in several threads on the NK forum, apparently without a link. The total count is 102 satellites, including the eight Russian vehicles that are part of the ISS.

Absent from the list are the Resurs-P remote sensing satellites, confirming earlier indications that none of the three orbiting satellites are operational. Also note the presence of Luch (Olimp), generally considered to be a dedicated military satellite.

We have three satellite images with relay satellite images

* Luch-5 (x3) - these are Luch 5A, Luch 5B and Luch 5V
* Luch - this is likely Luch-Olimp (i think the older Luch generations, Altair and Gelios, can be ruled out due to age)
* Reflektor - i have no idea what this satellite is.

* Reflektor - i have no idea what this satellite is.

A laser reflector satellite built by NII PP (now called NPK SPP), but ordered by the Air Force Research Laboratory to calibrate tracking telescopes used by the US space surveillance network. Launched piggyback with Meteor-3M N°1  by a Zenit-2 rocket on December 10, 2001. Although built for a foreign partner, Roscosmos seems to consider it part of its own orbital constellation. By the way, NPK SPP also built the Blits reflector satellites.

But it is identified as being one of 42 operational comsats and looks like Luch-5, so this is a bit of a mystery.

Most likely Reflektor is the calibration satellite after all. The list was divided into communications, remote sensing, scientific, navigation satellites and piloted spacecraft. Calibration satellites don't really fit in any of these categories, so rather than making a separate category for Reflektor, they decided to put it under the comsats. Although it is depicted as a Luch-5, that doesn't really mean anything. Some of the other drawings aren't accurate either (for instance, Elektro-L/Arktika-M and Spektr-RG/Lomonosov look identical). The same goes for Luch/Olimp. Although the drawing is identical to that of Luch-5, it probably has a totally different payload and possibly even a different platform. Luch is just a cover name for Olimp.

MOSCOW, 25 January. /TASS/. /TASS/. The first launch of the Soyuz-2 carrier rocket in 2022 is scheduled for February 3 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region, according to the message of the YaTV online publication of the Yamal region on VKontakte.

"On February 3, 2022 (reserve days - February 4 and 5), the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle will be launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome," the message says.

It is clarified that the areas of fall of the separating parts of the rocket, according to calculations, are located between the village of Yar-Sale and the Ports-Yakha trading post, the village of Panaevsk and the Khadyta-Yakh trading post. They are declared temporarily dangerous. Residents of the area were urged to refrain from traveling to these areas.

The Japanese company Axelspace Corporation has signed a contract with GK Launch Services (a subsidiary of Glavkosmos, part of the Roscosmos State Space Corporation) for the launch of four GRUS satellites. The spacecraft will be launched on the Russian Soyuz-2 launch vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in 2022.

Axelspace Corporation today announces new products of Earth Observation Platform “AxelGlobe” which will be released this year in response to its steady progress. In addition, the company is going to launch four additional satellites for AxelGlobe named “GRUS” in the fourth quarter of 2022, building a nine-satellite constellation which will enable daily observation anywhere on the Earth.

For what it's worth, given doubts expressed in the launch thread, that Luna-25 is "any-when" near ready for launch:
July 23rd at 02:21:45 Moscow time is the launch date target at this time, with the 24th as a backup at 02:55:49 Moscow time:

https://tass.com/science/1393447
= 23:21:45, 22 July UTC prime
and
= 23:55:49, 23 July UTC backup
