The Yak-42D is still in production, a few should be delivered soon to Gazprom Avia. Yakovlev also produces the Yak-130 (military).
The Tu-204 is being produced in Ulyanovsk and the long range version in Kazan (1 for Dalavia and 2 for Rossia this year).
The Tu-334 should enter service in 2004.
The Tu-154M: around 30 might be produced (but I'm not sure)
The Il-96-300 is produced (in small numbers) in Voronezh as will the longer version 96-400.
TAPO (in Tashkent) produces Il-76MF and Il-114 but they have financial problems (that's an euphemism...). The Il-76MF didn't entered service yet.
2 or 3 An-124 were also recently produced in the Aviastar factory in Ulyanovsk, for Volga-Dniepr.
Finally, the An-74 is still in production; Aeroflot placed an order for 30 An-74-300, will they finally buy them, it's another history...

There were 10 TU154M in various stages of completion in the factory in Samara a fortnight ago with RA85204 which I am told is an ex Cubana aircraft which has recently returned for rework. The rate of progress on the 154's appears to be fairly slow at the moment with only c/n1017 positively identified (It had been qouted with a delivery date of 1998!) There were also the major component's of the first 3 Antonov AN140's. I think most of the Russian Aircraft Industry is suffering from severe financial problem's at the moment.
