What the announcer on the TV fails to tell but is visible on the clip is the fourth warship in the background.

This is the Bangladeshi frigate Osman. She is part of the UNIFIL. The Blue UN flag on the main mast and the Bangladeshi flag in the jack staff clearly distinguishes her from the Russians.

And here is the photo of Yaruslav Mudryy.
