The article says that RZD has signed a memorandum of understanding with FS (Italian railways), so perhaps they're also interested in Pendolino tilting technology.

No. Pendolino is different case. RZhD have a contract with Siemens on 8 Velaro RUS trains. First train should be shipped at the end of 2007 and will go to service in early 2009.

The Pendolino is planned for St. Petersburg–Helsinki, the Velaro RUS is planned for Piter–Moscow and later Moscow–Nishni Novgorod, as far as I remember.

The Velaro RUS is a „brother“ of the Velaro E and the ICE 3.
