As per NK forum, the preparation of DM-03 No. 2L on Baikonur cosmodrome will begin on April 16th and there will be two Proton-M rollouts, one of which for test fuelling of DM-03 upper stage.

Any updates on this mission?

The launch is still on schedule. Preparation of Proton-M and DM-03 on Baikonur has begun on April 29th. Three Glonass-M satellites will be delivered soon to cosmodrome. There will be Proton-M rollout to the launch pad 81/24 for DM-03 test fuelling on June 10th. Then Proton-M will be transported back to assembly building for preparation to a launch at 10:36:12 UTC on July 1st. Satellites should be placed to second orbital plane of GLONASS system.

A short summary on the satellite delivery:
May 20th, the first satellite;
May 27th, the second one;
June 3rd, the third one
So one satellite per week.

Why the Proton launcher rolls out from MIK-92A-50 fairing first ??

Hope they realise it is back-to-front when they get it to the launch site!

Sorry, it is the usual way of rolling out Proton from MIK-92A-50.

But they are rolled "engines first" from MIK-1 :

I had never noticed this difference !

Sorry, it is the usual way of rolling out Proton from MIK-92A-50.

The door to Hall 111 at 92A-50 is on the east side of the building, but the Breeze M fueling facility ("car wash") is on the west side.  So Proton comes out fairing first, goes east past the railroad switch, then reverses to the west and goes engines first to the car wash. 

From there it goes fairing first back to the switch, reverses, and then takes a different track that crosses in front of 92A-50 and continues east to the pads, engines first.  The railroad crossing in front of 92A-50 is a good photo opportunity when Proton is crossing in front of the building. 

Edited because I misremembered a detail the first time.

Good piece of information!

As this does not feature Briz they must have reversed after exiting?
