Did quick search, looks like havent been posted yet.

Found many more news articles in russian regarding this, but its probably not useful to most readers here.

In short: same engines (Perm), same size, and x1.5 the range. Looks like there are orders for 15 of them from the RU government. First one ready to go, and is configured to fly entire presidents cabinet (video I saw pointed out that it will have EXACT number of seats as there are cabinet members).

The also mentioned how this is the "bloodline" for the factory in Kazan.

Sorry if it was allready discussed.

Obviously a problem with translation, but the article says, "Modified Tu-214’s flight range is half as much as basic model’s." So one has to wonder what else was lost in translation. It doesn't give any details of payload - it just says it accomplishes the extra range by virtue of aerodynamic improvements. Hmm..

Good if they've improved the performance this much, if it's accurate.
