I wonder where do they want to fly on 777? Even for SVO-JFK busiest direction both Aeroflot and Delta are using typical 763. Does not make too much sense to get 777 instead of 787 either.

I haven't heard or read anything about this until now. How old is their current fleet? May not have the luxury of waiting on the dream?... just a question as I haven't paid much (any) attention to this.

Aeroflot is now pretty young 5-10 years in average, they got many new Airbuses recently.
But 767/330 are the biggest jets they have. Unless they plan huge expansion it's hard to understand why they need 777.
