 AIUI it's essentially Russian territory as long as the lease lasts.

What options are there for picking up the 36 OneWeb satellites from Baikonur?
I can't find a civilian western cargo plane where the OneWeb containers fit through the cargo door.
Apart from special solutions like Airbus Beluga. But for what a loading platform is required at the airports.
I don't believe that a C5 or C17 flies to Baikonur.
Only AN-124 and IL-76 remain. An IL-76 would have to fly several times.
All airlines flying with Ukrainian license, will not fly to Baikonur. Antonov, Zet Avia, Maximus Air Cargo
In purely formal terms, a Volga Dnepr Airline AN-124 could transport the satellites from Baikonur to India. But is that politically desirable?
Several flights with a Silkway IL-76 (Azerbaijan) would perhaps be more neutral.

Truck them out?

OK but where to?
Baikonur is in Kazakhstan, only leased to Russia. Not sure about the level of extrateritoriality there (cars do seem to use russian license plates). So landing at Baikonur (Yubileyniy) would most likely be somewhat awkward. The next closest airport seems to be Kyzylorda, about 250km away.

Kazakhstan hm, I don't know if Antonov (or Maximus) will risk that.
Then maybe Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The airport is big enough.
However, that is almost 900 km to drive.

 I can't really see those sats being worth much after being in custody of a James Bond bad guy organization for so long.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Oh trust me, there is worth, short of the satellites being returned as crushed material.

We’ve partnered with @vivacom to build a new set of SNPs in Bulgaria. The SNPs will deliver improved, resilient broadband coverage stretching from Central Europe to Central Asia, including the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.

Also, she said that the following launch will also be ON FALCON 9 and not with ISRO. And the launch window for this second flight with
@SpaceX opens in January.

So, the next two OneWeb Launches will be both with SpaceX on Falcon 9.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to launch a batch of satellites next week from Florida's Space Coast.

The rocket will send 40 satellites into orbit for OneWeb on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 5:37 p.m. ET from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center.

OneWeb is putting hundreds of satellites in low earth orbit for low latency broadband communications. This will be the first launch of OneWeb satellites with SpaceX.

The Falcon 9's first stage booster will return to Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

When the launch happens, you can watch it in the FOX 35 News App or at FOX35orlando.com on our livestream.

OneWeb has not only booked three dedicated Falcon 9 missions, but has now added another flight to the multi-launch deal -- a rideshare mission with Iridium satellites set to fly next year.

These four launches, plus one more launch on India's GSLV, will complete the Gen1 network.
