Russia Today, who posted the video, had this to say:
The 88 member 'Pearls of Russia' women's skydiving team has just successfully pulled off a white, blue and red flower formation jump in the skies over Kolomna near Moscow, setting a world record for women's parachuting. Their first two attempts were not successful, but the third time was a charm. The previous world record was set by a German female team, which consisted of 84 members.
