I would venture to suggest that the GZUR missile is represented in the image.
(I write through a translator; I speak English quite poorly).

Yes, its most probably GZUR(Giperzvukovaya Upravlyaemaya Raketa / Hypersonic Guided Missile) developed by former "Raduga" design bureau(part of KTRV now). 6 meters, 1500kg, 1500km, 6M. Possibly intended as antiship missile for Tu-22M3M.

Recently, flight-tests of a new hypersonic missile for the Tu-22M3M were conducted.

The GZUR Probably can deserve its own thread now.

So basically Russia is keeping up with tradition where NPO Mashinostroyenia handles the surface to surface weapons (The Zircon) while Raduga handles the Air to Surface weapons (GZUR).

So what is that image of? Is it of an actual in-development missile project? Does it have a precise designation?
Surely, even if not directly Tsirkon related, underlying principle of the missile seems to be similar and perhaps some basic development was shared between missile-makers?

So, what's the question?
Totoro wonders what kind of rocket is shown in the picture above. GZUR is, or not GZUR. Or in general, the work of "girls of designers", which has nothing to do with reality at all.

Perhaps this link will help you, it has almost exhaustive information.
This aviation hypersonic missile with a range of 1,500 km. But not the fact that it is designed to fight ships.
GZUR-hypersonic guided missile.
