Found this over at the offical boards, all credit to Siro for the original translation...

Here is a snippit

It's hard to believe, but STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl looks like it is ready to be released. We understand the skeptical look on you faces that some of you have right now. But this, my friends, is the pure, clean truth. We (your favorite editor and Anton Logvinov), with our own eyes, and our own hands, saw the game, and it really looks like a finished pruduct. This is not a multi-player test, not a physics demonstration, not a demonstration of the abilities of the engine and other technical wonders - this was a real, living pulsing beta-version of that same STALKER, that some long waiting veterans have dubbed ZhDALKER (zhdat' means "to wait" in Russian, so they took out the STA and added the part that means "to wait" ) , and it seems lost hope to see it in this lifetime. But the amazing happens. Finally the long-awaited project that was portrayed by the media as this miracle-project in eternal production has finally began to take form and is promising to be something to definately expect in the first quarter of the new year. GSC Game World have once again caught the attention and love of countless fans, and Anton Bolshakov has recently made a statement promising to give away his car if Stalker does not come out.

Well, I've been waiting for STALKER since 2004. I wouldn't dare get my hopes up, but a Christmas release would be in their best financial interest. All of the "latest" news that I've read and heard [official only] is that it won't come out till Q1 2007 at the earliest. I have serious doubts about STALKER these days though...

Yeah this video [not a leak] says as much at the end.

Spoiler: Show

There is also some video snippets of the bloodsuckers in action. The narration is in a foreign language to me, but in the end there is some english text.
