I'm curious because even though the forthcoming Amur rocket is also called Soyuz-5

If I am not mistaken, Amur and Soyuz-5 are two completely different rockets, Amur being methane powered while Soyuz-5 uses the traditional RP-1. Another name for Soyuz-5 is Irtysh, not Amur.

Just corrected my post to reflect that Amur is another name for the Soyuz-7 while the Soyuz-5 is also called Irtysh.

Are we sure Soyuz derivatives use RP-1?  Pretty sure RP-1 is a Western kerosene based propellant.

RP-1 is a kerosene-based propellant. The R-7 derivatives used to launch to Sputnik, Vostok, and Voshkod spacecraft into orbit used RP-1, as does the Soyuz-2

Every Soyuz excluding Soyuz-U2 until recently used T-1 and Soyuz-2 now uses a new formulation of RG-1.

RP-1 is an American type of kerosene that does not exist in Russia at all. Soyuz launch vehicles use T-1 and RG-1, which are slight more dense than American RP-1.

Soyuz-U2 and Soyuz-2 launched from Vostochnyi since last year use other types of propellant.

Roscosmos:
Today, specialists of the Yuzhny Space Center (a branch of the Ground Space Infrastructure Facilities Operation Center of Roscosmos State Corporation) received a railroad train with blocks of two Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicles intended for launches of the Soyuz MS-25 manned spacecraft and Progress MS-26 cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station.

The rocket components are planned to be unloaded to the workplaces in the assembly and test building of the 112th site of the cosmodrome for acceptance and further preservation, where they will remain until the start of direct preparation for launches.

Roscosmos:
Specialists of the Yuzhny Space Center (part of the Ground Space Infrastructure Facilities Operation Center of Roscosmos State Corporation) took delivery of a railroad train with Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle blocks and head fairing.

From Tyuratam station the train went to the 112th site of Baikonur cosmodrome. The launch vehicle units were transported to the 31st site and unloaded in the assembly and test building.

Also at the cosmodrome, specialists of the Yuzhny Space Center and Lavochkin Research and Production Association (part of Roscosmos) continue to work with the upper stage "Fregat": pneumovacuum testing and evaluation of telemetry data. The upper stage is to be transported to the refueling station.

I think the Soyuz is for the launch of Arktika M2.

Soyuz 15000-067 is in the background,
presumably for the launch of Progress in December.

Roscosmos:
A railroad train with two Soyuz-2 launch vehicles and head fairings for future launches has arrived at the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

Hi guys is there a proper page that lists all of the Soviet launches together correctly. Somebody said usa broke 1982 world record of 108 launches by soviets in a year after last SpaceX starlink launch on 7 December 2023 (coincidence it was my birthday). I need to verify it guys

Jonathan McDowell has several pages containing various space-related stats.

The page below has several graphs with raw data below each graph.

https://planet4589.org/space/stats/launches.html

Companies that are at least partially headquartered in the USA have launched 109 times by 00:00 UTC on 10 December 2023. That count includes one launch attempt by Virgin Orbit from the UK and six launches by Rocketlab from New Zealand.

Current numbers of orbital launches from US soil are 102 attempts with 98 successes and 4 failures. That would put it in a 5 way tie with the Soviet Union in 1977, 1981, 1983, and 1985. Launches from the Soviet Union reached an orbit 99 times in 1976 and 101 times in 1982.

So what must be counted us soil or all over, though the us soil will also break
