Does anyone know the current status of the TU-334?
(for those who don't kno wwhat that is,
its a Russian regional jet project. Prototype has flown.
Looks like a `BAC 1-11 on steroids' i.e. T-tail, rear twin
jet engines.)

Have/did any Russian airlines made firm orders? (as `firm' as one
can use that term)
