Narrative:
An Antonov 2 biplane was destroyed when it impacted terrain and burned in Promin Village, Ukraine. Both occupants were killed.
The aircraft struck the roof of a house before it impacted terrain.
Burnt packages of cigarettes were found near the wreckage. The aircraft was likely used to smuggle cigarettes from Belarus. The accident occurred about 145 km south of the Belarus border.

Probable Cause:

Cause: During a visual approach at night the aircraft, unfit for night flights, lost altitude, resulting in a collision with obstacles on the ground, and subsequent collision with the ground. A contributing factor was that the crew was technically not allowed to fly the plane.

Classification:
