What make you think, that the Russian didn't know about the SR-71 at the time ?
They most likely were fully aware of it. For starters, the entire stealth concept was all based on a Russian mathematician's papers (they simply never
applied it that way). Second, the Soviets had pretty much penetrated our uppermost layer of the CIA at the time, with some very high-placed and (now)
well-known spies...so they certainly had the assets needed to be fully aware of the program...sadly.
Would be interesting to see what kind of planes we really have now, that won't be revealed for another 15 years or so. From inside sources, mostly all
to do with some seriously advanced VTOL capabilities combined with stealth and mission flexibility.
