The gaffe was noticed by Russian journalist and blogger Pavel Pryanikov, who wrote on his Twitter:
"Russia mourns Fidel's death against the backdrop of Puerto Rican flag," Pryanikov tweeted.
Bands and triangle on the Cuban and Puerto Rican flags turned to be a trap for the Channel One, which confused the colours.
Cuba's iconic revolutionary leader died on November 25 at the age of 90.
