Many Wikidata changes in the ru-wiki watchlist are shown plain wrong. They are shown as if they were made locally in ru-wiki, therefore all links lead to ru-wiki and not to Wikidata: diff, hist, user contribution, and their talk page). Also, such changes are not marked with 'd'.

In the settings, the extended watchlist is turned off and grouping changes in recent changes and the watchlist is turned off as well.

An example of wrongly displayed changes:

However, some of the changes in Wikidata are displayed correctly, as before:

As a version:
Incorrectly displayed changes are done in properties while correctly displayed ones are done in items. Here are Wikidata edits that correspond to incorrectly displayed changes from my first screenshot:

And here is the Wikidata edit that corresponds to the correctly displayed change from my second screenshot:

Are you using any userscripts or gadgets related to Wikidata on ruwiki? I can't reproduce it. Tried several users that made edits to properties recently (and with extended watchlist and grouping disabled) and no Wikidata edits that are related to properties show up.

I have two Wikidata-related gadgets enabled

And globally I use a script that shows links to Wikidata items on Wikipedia pages:
Links to Wikidata items ([[d:User:Yair rand/WikidataInfo.js]])
mw.loader.load(" rand/WikidataInfo.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript");

The Wikidatainfo.js isn't the cause, because I have that in my global.js as well.
I don't have those gadgets enabled and as I can't read Russian, I have no idea what they do. Have you checked what happens without them?

I've just checked, nothing changed.
The first one displays Wikidata item labels in Wikipedia infoboxes, the second one is intended for fast Wikidata population with the information from Wikipedia infoboxes.

Have you tried to reproduce the issue by adding articles whose items are related to properties that were changed before you add? I'm not sure but it seems that doesn't work.
It seems that a property should be changed after you start watching an article.
