Using the Soyuz schematic on Wiki as a location reference and looking closely at the images from the video, if I had to guess?
I'd say that the reentry parachute from the Decent Module had accidentally deployed and gotten wrapped around the Orbital Module.
Image cut-out of, and link to Wiki page with full Soyuz stack image:
Next, image I picked from the video, enlarged and enhanced to show what looks to be something like a premature parachute deployment wrapped around the
Orbital Module - highlighted as well to illustrate theory.
If this theory is indeed the case, I personally would not be surprised if NASA and Russia both zipped their lips. They are not anything about
transparency in space exploration... not even close, lol.
