Looks more like a Tu-22M Backfire. For more pictures:

Looks like a Tu-26, the maritime patrol/attack version of the Tu-22.

"According to some sources, the Tu-22M Backfire-B/C production variants were believed to be designated Tu-26 by Russia, although this is disputed by many sources."

So let's say it's a Backfire ;)
