According to Sergey Karakayev, the commander of the Strategic Rocket Forces, the Nizhni Tagil and Novosibirsk divisions are now fully equipped with new Yars missiles. The divisions in Irkutsk and Yoshkar-Ola are in the process of conversion and Vypolzovo (Bologoye) and Barnaul apparently haven't started yet. This statement largely repeats what he said in September 2016, although at that time Karakayev seemed to suggest that conversion at Bologoye was imminent.
