Launch thread for the fifth Glonass-K satellite.

This should be satellite No. 17, launching from either Plesetsk LC 43/3 or 43/4.

If launch is successful, the satellite will receive a Kosmos designation.



Progression of scheduled launch:

ABOUT GLONASS SYSTEM
Next year the launches will be carried out on an operational basis, but two Glonass-K will definitely be launched, the second of which has a larger number of navigation signals, that is, this is an evolutionary development of the satellite. The launch of "Glonass-K2" is planned, and I am almost sure that the launch of the last "Glonass-M" will take place, because the resource of its ground storage will end by that time. Thus, approximately next year we have to launch four vehicles ...

The source spoke about plans to expand the GLONASS system in 2021
03:31 18.06.2021

The source told about the expected replenishment of the orbital group of the GLONASS system in 2021

MOSCOW, June 18 - RIA Novosti. The orbital grouping of the Russian global navigation system GLONASS will be replenished with two or four satellites in 2021, a source in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.
"They are preparing to launch (in 2021) from two to four devices," the source said.
According to him, it is planned to complete the production of the Glonass-K satellite with number 16 in July, but it will be launched only after testing a similar device with number 15 in orbit, which is scheduled to be completed in October.
The source did not rule out that the next satellite, which will be launched into space, will be the last "Glonass-M" with number 61.
He also said that the first Glonass-K2 satellite with number 13 could be launched before the New Year. In addition, according to him, Glonass-K with number 17 could go into orbit before the device with number 16, since it it is necessary to test a new on-board information and navigation complex, which allows emitting up to ten navigation signals.
...

Next Glonass launch = Glonass-M no. 61?

Glonass-K no. 17 may launch before Glonass-K no. 16.

Glonass-K no. 16 will be launched only AFTER the tests on previously-launched Glonass-K no. 15 are completed.  These tests are scheduled to be completed in October.

Glonass-K2 no. 13 could be launched by the end of the year.

Then, TBD 2022.

Q3 2022:
The primary source of information for this actually is another forum:
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/threads/Космические-технологии.1045319/page-1167
(see post 23,330 on May 19 and following ones)

Other dates given: 
-Glonass-K N°16 (Plesetsk): August 2022 [later moved forward to July 7]
-Glonass-M N°61, Glonass-K N°17, Glonass-K2 N°13 (Plesetsk): 3rd quarter of 2022
-Luna-25: 22 August 2022 (but will likely be delayed)
-Ionosfera-1 and 2 (Vostochny): March 2023

So, either August 2022, in the place that #16 had, or September 2022, as the remainder of the third annual quarter.

MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. The launch of a Soyuz-2 carrier rocket from the Plesetsk space center in northwestern Russia’s Arkhangelsk Region is scheduled for October 10, 2022, the government of the nearby region has said.

The authorities of the Komi Republic that borders the Arkhangelsk Region said three districts on its territory have been designated as areas of temporary danger due to potential fall of debris.

"The launch of a Soyuz-2 carrier rocket with a spacecraft is scheduled for October 10, 2022, from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome," the Komi government said in a statement.

"Aerial survey will be conducted in the designated areas between October 6 and 7, to make sure that no people are present in zones where separated stages of the rocket may fall," the authorities said.

Municipal authorities and the population, as well as public organization and enterprises, are currently being informed about the launch and potential hazards.
