Welcome to the forums!
Your pronunciation of both consonants is good.

Thank you. But I´m watching videos on youtube and native spanish speakers pronounce soft R differently. But it doesn´t matter, can spanish speaker understand me?

A single 'r' between vowels is clipped. It is rolled, otherwise.
A Spanish speaker will understand you just fine, provided you roll the 'r' when it isn't between vowels and that you always roll the 'rr'.

Thank you very much. We´ve got in Russian language a similar R, but it is pronounced longer than clipped R and shorter than Rr

The soft 'r' in Russian isn't like the clipped 'r' of Spanish, but you correctly pronounced the clipped 'r' in your recording. Use the Russian soft 'r' sound when saying words like 'tres', 'verde' and 'hablar'.
