Cross-post; I checked SputnikNews (the source for the linked article below) for a similar story, but I didn't find one:

Yamal-601 Satellite Set To Be Launched Into Orbit From Baikonur In Late May - Source
Daniyal Sohail 8 hours ago Sun 10th March 2019 | 05:03 AM

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th March, 2019) The Yamal-601 telecommunications satellite is set to be launched into orbit from the Baikonur cosmodrome at the end of May upon the order of the Russian satellite communications operator Gazprom Space Systems, a Russian space industry source told Sputnik on Sunday.

"The Proton-M carrier rocket with the Briz-M upper stage and the Yamal-601 communications satellite is scheduled to be launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on [my bold] May 31," the source said.

He added that the Proton-M rocket will be sent from the Moscow-based Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center to Baikonur in early April.

The Yamal-601 was ordered by Gazprom Space Systems to Information Satellite Systems - Reshetnev (ISS-Reshetnev). It contains components supplied by European company Thales Alenia Space.

The Yamal-601 is designed to replace the Yamal-202 satellite currently in the orbit. Its service area will be the European part of Russia, including the Kaliningrad region, the Urals, and Western Siberia. It will operate in C- and Ku-bands, covering the visible part of Russia, the CIS countries, Europe, the middle East and part of Southeast Asia, and providing services to the corporate sector, regional administrations, small businesses and individuals.

A "mini-schedule" for the next few Proton launches in 2019; references are posts in this thread up-thread; seeking correction and/or clarification:

Satellite                             Upper Stage    Date             Launch Provider      LC
Blagovest #4                       Briz-M              May 17          Roskosmos               81/24
Yamal-601                           Briz-M              May 31          Roskosmos               81/24  (only 14 days later?)
Spektr-RG                           DM-03              June 21         Roskosmos               81/24  (21 days later)
Eutelsat 5 West B & MEV-1    Briz-M             summer         ILS                           81/24

Discussion about minimum time between successive Proton launches starts here.

EDIT--Thank you for the proofread, PM3!

TWO GRUS SATELLITES AND THE FUKUI PREFECTURAL SATELLITE TO BE LAUNCHED IN 2020

Following the launch of the first GRUS micro-satellite (GRUS-1A) on December 27th, 2018, Axelspace Corporation has decided to launch two more satellites of the same type (GRUS-1B and GRUS-1C).
Moreover, Axelspace and the Fukui Satellite Technology & Research Association (FSTRA), which have been collaborating on the development of a “Fukui Prefectural Satellite”, will launch it with same rocket as GRUS-1B/1C. The development framework and schedule have also been agreed upon.
GRUS-1B/1C and the Fukui Prefectural Satellite will all become part of Axelspace’s AxelGlobe infrastructure, aiming to eventually capture imagery of the whole Earth landmass every day. After the launch the number of satellites in AxelGlobe will grow to four, greatly increasing the platform’s imaging capabilities. Axelspace will manage the Fukui Satellite as part of the GRUS constellation to achieve the highest efficiency.
The Fukui Satellite will be the first AxelGlobe satellite not owned by Axelspace (it will be the property of the FSTRA). While owning only one satellite, the FSTRA will enjoy a higher image capturing frequency of its areas of interest thanks to the capacity shared by GRUS-1A/1B/1C. At the same time, by using the Fukui Prefectural Satellite’s capacity to its fullest, Axelspace will be able to obtain imagery of areas outside the FSTRA’s areas of interest.
By using this kind of win-win collaboration model with other organizations, Axelspace is aiming for an early completion of AxelGlobe.

Launch details below are the details of the launch of GRUS-1B, GRUS-1C and of the Fukui Prefectural Satellite.

Rocket:  Soyuz-2

Launch site:  Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan

Orbit:  Sun-synchronous, 600 km altitude

Launch operator: GK Launch Services

Launch period:  from Q2 2020

MOSCOW, March 13 - RIA News. Launch from the Plesetsk cosmodrome to the orbit of three low-orbit communication satellites Gonets-M by the Rokot carrier rocket was postponed from May to June due to the lack of equipment of the Ukrainian-made control system, a source in the space rocket told RIA Novosti.

Assumedly, this would be a Glonass-K1?  The K2 model is no-when near ready for launching, yes?
