This is an interview with one of the designers of the EKIP aircraft (or Tarielka) - Edward Isaev, for one of the Russian news channels in 2002. This video is freely available for download from the aircraft designer's web site:
It consists of two parts:
1st - actual news segment (it's about 3 minutes long), and
2nd - behind the scenes footage of the interview with Edward Isaev (this part is not complete because that's how it appears on the aircraft designer's site)

Sharashka - was an informal name for secret research and development laboratories in the Soviet Gulag labor camp system in 1940-1950's.

The latest news that I could find about EKIP date back to 2003-2004 when the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) was going to co-partner further developments and building of this aircraft. Apparently the test flights were tentatively scheduled for 2007 at Webster Field, near Patuxent River.
