Did the Russians just change their LST to an LPD?

Thanks to S300V4 for the pic!

Question.  Does the ship above look like the pic below?

Can't be sure but it looks like the Russians have done a design change to this class.  They're going from LST type ship to an LPD design.

Does this mean that they're about to get a bit more serious about out of area operations with their Naval Infantry?

What I'd like to know is whether or not this hull is ice capable.  My bet is that it is.  The Russians appear to be gearing up for a serious run at the arctic and their Airborne and Naval Infantry seem to be at the forefront of that effort.
