Doesn't appear very "stealthy" to me. In fact it kinda looks like a "Burke".

Until very recently, Russian surface combatants have had very cluttered decks which would indicate a very large radar crossection. Given the difficulties involved in maintaining stealth aircraft (special hangars, buttering the seams, etc.) I think that naval "stealth" is pretty much limited to contouring the hull & superstructure. This Krivak doesn't look special in that regard.
