The description you found has a lot of errors or at least questionable
comments.  A far more believable source is Howard Moon's excellent book
Soviet SST: The Techno-Politics of the Tupolev-144.  Its a bit hard to
find but worth the effort if you have any interest in this aircraft.
Yes, they copied a lot from Concorde, but there's also a significant
amount of unique engineering in the Tu-144.
