The Li-2 operated on a flight from Moscow-Vnukovo to Kraków with an en route stop at Kiev.
En route from Kiev, the right engine developed problems. The crew opted for a precautionary landing at Skoromokhi Airport, but the right engine caught fire and the aircraft was force-landed in difficult terrain near Turovets, 15 km east of Skoromokhi.
The aircraft burnt out.
It appeared the engines had been serviced with 'winter' oil despite the warm spring temperatures.
