Well, that was interesting. Wonder what the "Sierra-Lima" comment from the destroyer meant?
The destroyer signals "Sierra Lima Two" means "Request your course, speed, and passing intention." in ICS signalling for Russian ships - they repeat this request later in length.
Also in the beginning, you hear "Zulu Lima UnaOne" or ZL1 from the Russians, which means "I have received and understood your message."
The current flags on the side of the destroyer are also interesting:
Which means "I intend to pass you on your port side."
I can't fully see the flags hoisted before, but the message ended with a 2, I will try to look for better pictures of this.
