It looks like some kind of tarmac surface behind the aircraft, perhaps mistook something else for the runway in poor visibility or else the report of distance from runway is misreported & it overran the runway. Either way, I doubt this will buff out.
Utrenniy is a fairly recent development in support of a LNG production facility in NW Siberia, some interesting photos on Google Maps
