And the first Angara A5 / Persey again with ballast?
Or is Persey 14S48 closely enough related to Block DM-03 and Block DM-SLB, so that they have confidence?

It is a heavily modernized interim DM-03 phase I successor specifically for Angara Family with developed two versions: 14S48 with 11D58M and 14349 with 11D58MF (related and planned developments: SL/SLB replaced with common SLU version for existing Zenit (test articles exist). A common universal version based from MOB-DM potentially named DM-04 is planned to debut with Soyuz-5, 6, 7 and expand to Angara, Yenisei and Don.

Perseus

In 2014, RKK Energia issued a technical project for the 14S48 Persei (Perseus) and 14S49 upper stages, which incorporated most features proposed for the Phase II upgrade in the DM-03 project. The 14S48 variant was equipped with an older 11D58M engine, while the 14S49 would sport the new-generation 11D58MF engine. Both variants will apparently do away with the use of toxic propellants in auxiliary propulsion systems and will feature new compact flight control system. Both stages would also have a new removable adapter, which could serve as an interface for the largest payload fairing available for the Angara-5 rocket.

Block DM-03 11S861-03 still has the big round (heavy) avionics container above.
14S48 Persey does not have that anymore, but small avionics container similar to the Block DM-SLB, I believe.
As it was with Block DM-SL I do not know.
Does 14S48 inherit the avionics from the DM-SLB?

AFAIU mostly yes but they are newer models plus some additional replacements and upgrades. Mr. Zak at one time told me that he planned to release an update with further details closer to its first flight.
See these images for 14S48 and 14S49 respectively and compare them with their Proton and Zenit versions

The next version (14S50?) is called Drakar

Cross-posts re: third (and second) Angara-A5 launches.  The third orbital launch of the Angara-A5 launch vehicle is currently scheduled to utilize the Blok DM-03 upgrade designated Persey.  This will be the first launch using Persey.

The second launch of #AngaraA5 will be without payload, said #Rogozin today. There will be the test of the launch vehicle with new upper stage 14S48 #Perseus (modification of DM family): https://ria.ru/20190607/1555362692.html
***

Anatoly Zak writes on his website, that the second Angara A5 starts again with Briz-M. (14S43, cyr. 14C43)

http://www.russianspaceweb.com/angara5-flight2.html#2018_09

@anik writes on Novosti kosmonavtiki forum that Persey (14S48, cyr. 14C48) will start later with A5 3L.

http://novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/forum/messages/forum13/topic14340/message1881165/#message1881165
***

The second launch of Angara-A5, now scheduled for the first half of 2020 from Plesetsk, will use the Briz-M upper stage?
And carry a dummy payload?
To GEO?

Yes.

The third launch of Angara-A5 will also be from Plesetsk and will use Persey, an upgrade of the DM-03 upper stage?
And, again, it will carry a dummy payload?  Or a real payload?
To GEO?

If the second Angara-A5 launch will be successful then one of Ekspress-AMU goes on the third Angara-A5 with DM-03.
***

Following on from above, if this launch carries a functional payload, then, by process of elimination, would it be Ekspress-AMU 4?
Ekspress-AMU 3
Ekspress-AMU 7
Ekspress-AMU 4
probably on Angara 5

https://ria.ru/20191010/1559620876.html
Proton is still primary for Ekspress-AMU 3 and Ekspress-AMU 7 as they can be launched together[,] other[wise they] must launch on two A5's[,] unless they wait for Vostochny and Angara-A5M to be ready.

Tonight [August 14], the second AngaraA5 was sent from the Khrunichev Center to the Plesetsk cosmodrome by rail. It is expected that it will arrive on August 17. The launch is scheduled for November 3.

Down-thread: This is the same train that is supposed to transport the third Angara-A5 from Omsk to Moscow in November 2020.

There are rumors that the next #AngaraA5 launch is scheduled for the next year! Yahoo, we don’t have to wait another six years!Crossed fingersRocket
It'll be launched with Persey upper stage test flight only. Next Angara after this launch might be light version 1.2. Only the 2 launches of Angara rockets are now planned for year 2021.

This year, the Angara-5 heavy-class launch vehicle will be launched with a real spacecraft on board, and not with a satellite model. This launch, which is already the third in a row, according to the instructions of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, must pass with a payload.

About this in an interview with the news agency RIA News said the general director of the Khrunichev State Space Research Center Alexei Varochko.

The Ministry of Defense has set the task of providing the third launch with a payload. To do this, you will have to work hard, including with insurance companies.

- said the head of the research and production center.

He clarified that it is not yet known what type of satellite will be delivered by the launch vehicle.

Cross-post; the government and the MoD may not have anything else available but bricks to launch into orbit while accomplishing this test flight.
https://ria.ru/20210607/sputnik-1735967122.html

Speaking during hearings at the State Duma today, Dmitri Rogozin has confirmed what has been obvious all along, namely that Western sanctions are having a major impact on the Russian launch schedule. "We have more than enough rockets, but nothing to place into orbit with them", he said. Many satellites are nearly fully assembled, but still awaiting electronic components that cannot be delivered due to the sanctions. Rogozin said that in the past three years Roscosmos has increased the production of domestic space-rated electronic components by 2.5 times. So far this does not seem to be having much effect though. 

The statistics only confirm Rogozin's words. This year Russia has conducted just eight space launches, with only four of those carrying Russian-built payloads (Kosmos-2549, Progress MS-16, Arktika-M, Soyuz MS-18). There is a tremendous backlog of unlaunched satellites, including many high-priority payloads for the Ministry of Defense.

Articles also mentions Angara-A5M with increased thrust in the first and second stages. Payload to LEO from Vostochny increases from 24 to 27 t. Angara-A5P is derived from Angara-A5M with the engines operating with reduced thrust and with an emergency detection system. Proton-M is ₽2.5B ($34M) and Angara-A5 is ₽3.8B ($51M).

Payload = bricks?

About a year ago, Rogozin said the payload hadn't been determined yet. Last December, RIA Novosti quoted a source in the space industry as saying that the rocket would carry a dummy payload. Last February, Khrunichev director Aleksei Varochko said an order had been received from the Ministry of Defense to fly the third Angara-A5 with a live payload, but that they would have to "work hard" to achieve that goal, among others with insurance companies. Asked what the payload would be, he said he didn't know yet (and if he did, he probably wouldn't have revealed it anyway).

The recent RIA Novosti report on the shipment of the rocket to Plesetsk once again said the rocket will carry a dummy payload, but that is probably just a repeat of what was said in the December report and not based on new information. The same goes for the targeted launch date in the third quarter of the year (also mentioned in the December report). It's not clear if that is up-to-date information.   

As far as I know, the only payload for Angara-A5/Persei that can be positively determined from procurement documents is the geostationary component of the EKS early warning constellation, but there are probably others as well.

MOSCOW, August 25 - RIA Novosti. The third launch of the Angara-A5 heavy-class launch vehicle from the Plesetsk cosmodrome is planned for the first half of December, two sources in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.
"The launch of Angara-A5 with a new Perseus upper stage and a mock-up of a spacecraft from Plesetsk is scheduled for the first half of December," the agency's source said.
Another source confirmed this information.
In July, the third "Angara-A5" was sent to the cosmodrome.
Earlier it was reported that the Khrunichev Center, under a contract with the RF Ministry of Defense, is to produce six Angara-A5 missiles for flight tests. Two of them have already departed in 2014 and 2020 with the Briz-M upper stages and spacecraft mock-ups.
In addition, the enterprise, by order of the military department, is to produce four serial Angara-A5 missiles. In December 2020, the general director of the Khrunichev Center, Aleksey Varochko, said that they would be delivered to the customer in 2022-2024.
Angara is a family of environmentally friendly launch vehicles of various classes. It includes light carriers "Angara-1.2", heavy ones - "Angara-A5" and modernized "Angara-A5M", increased carrying capacity - "Angara-A5V".
