Source claimed that it was some "video surveillance device" that catches fire.

And yet there are folks who cry for wingtip cameras to be retrofitted every time there is a ground incident.

Lucky them that it was something that cabin crew could take care of and contain it!
When I was a flight attendant for a major Asian airline, I once discovered a buzzing noise in the ceiling of the plane. It sounded like electrical circuit or wiring overloading (just my guesstimate). We called one of the pilots to see, but he was very reserved about it. Just advised to keep observing. Luckily nothing happened but we logged it before disembarking.

As also noted in the AV Herald article. Is it possible this might be a mistranslation of a reference to the IFE system? Otherwise, what type of "video surveillance" system would likely be aboard?

The cockpit door security camera at a guess - would likely be on-board. It would be fitted in/near the location described in the first post.

Some aircraft/airlines have in-cabin cameras that can be used from the flight deck. Maybe Aeroflot have those?

nobody cried for a 230V powered camera... A 5V USB Camera would neither spark nor burn.

They can and do. It wouldn't be 5v anyway you can only run 5v a few meters before volt drop would see to it not working. I see poorly designed dangerous cameras every day at work but hopefully ones fitted to an aircraft would be designed to be fail safe.
