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.

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 !
