November 3: A Soyuz-2-1b/Fregat rocket to launch a GLONASS-M satellite from Plesetsk. According to Head of ISS Reshetnev Nikolai Testoedov, the status of the mission was discussed during a meeting on August 30, but the Ministry of Defense had not made an immediate decision on the launch date. The spacecraft was delivered to the launch site by the beginning of October and its launch was set for November 3. Following the launch accident with the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft on October 11, the GLONASS-M mission remained on schedule for launch on November 3.

Any hypotheses about the intended destination for this satellite in the Glonass constellation?

Any hypotheses about the intended destination for this satellite in the Glonass constellation?

my first guess would be 723 (plane 2 / point 12),  transmitted only L1 signals since 2016.
He was replaced in 2016 by 753 for a short time. But after the failed rescue attempts of 737 (other story),
he was reinstated on point 12.
Of course, the resources of 716 or 717 could be completely exhausted. also in plane 2.

For some months, 733 may not work completely anymore.
Also only L1 signals? I'm not sure.
That would be plane 1 / point 6.

plane 3 is unlikly

"Roscosmos" did not find those who want to insure the launch of "Glonass-M" on the "Union"

MOSCOW, October 24 - RIA News. After operation of the Soyuz-FG on October 11, the Center for the Operation of Ground-Based Space Infrastructure Facilities (part of Roscosmos) did not find those wishing to insure the launch of the Soyuz-1.1b launch vehicle with the Glonass-M spacecraft from Plesetsk, public procurement website said.

This is a silly and clickbaity news report. If you even can call it that... Insurance companies are just waiting for investigation results, no big deal.

Thanks, Volga news writes that too.
In addition, Roscosmos can not start without liability insurance (?)

No, it's not that simple.
Here is quote from "Vedomosti" (which by no means fits your formula "a silly and clickbaity news report"):
Quote
Ни одна российская страховая компания не подала заявку на участие в открытом запросе предложений по страхованию рисков при запуске ракеты-носителя «Союз-ФГ» с транспортным грузовым кораблем «Прогресс МС-10» и грузом, который нужно доставить на Международную космическую станцию (МКС), сообщает «Интерфакс». Это следует из закупочной документации на сайте госзакупок.

В связи с отсутствием заявок открытый запрос предложений признан несостоявшимся, отмечается в протоколе.

Заказчиком услуги выступал входящий в Роскосмос ФГУП «ЦЭНКИ» (организация, занятая эксплуатацией наземной инфраструктуры), запрос предложений был объявлен 10 октября. Максимальная премия по договору составляла 116,5 млн руб. Общая страховая сумма — 3,2 млрд руб., из них 3 млрд руб. — это страхование корабля, а 200 млн руб. — груза. Страховым случаем считается утрата или гибель застрахованного имущества, то есть корабля и груза.

Main details:
There was a tender for insurance of launch of Soyuz FG with Progress MS-10, which closed with no bids.
The total insured value was 3.2 B Roubles
and the max premium was at 116.5 M Roubles.
116.5 M / 3.2 B = 3.64%
- that's the point.

They don't want such low rate anymore. Which is quite understandable - for the period 2016-2018 Soyuz had 38 launches with 3 failures and one partial failure, i.e., only 89.5% launches were successes.
Why would they sell insurance for 3.6% - for a vehicle with 10% failures?

The bottom line:
Yes, they may wait for "investigation results", but most of all they are waiting for HIGHER max premium.

Well, Soyuz LV RTF was successful! (Lotos-S1 #3 and should = Kosmos 2528)

This launch, if on-schedule and successful, should be:
the next Russian orbital launch,
the next Soyuz LV flight,
the next orbital flight from the same launch complex at Plesetsk,
and receive the designation Kosmos 2529.
***

The launch vehicle and satellite should already be on-site?
