Honestly, there is nothing to compare: The FC-31 is flying since years and a close to serial standard true prototype will be ready soon, whereas this is a desperate attempt from a long famous design team - aka Mikoyan OKB - to gain attention. In fact I‘m sure everyone at the OKB knows that there is zero chance to ever materialise and zero chance that Russia will have a new aircraft carrier in the foreseeable future.

As such, there is not much to compare.
Man, you’re hard on the Republic Of Crimea (ROC)!
