Chronology of events:

The dispatcher informed the crew about the transition level, the airfield pressure and gave permission to descend to 500 m.The crew confirmed the pressure setting and continued to descend to 500 m. the fact of violation of the approach scheme and, violating the GA-85 NPP and the work technology, gave him permission to continue the approach. The crew continued to descend, with a large number of violations of the requirements of the Airplane Flight Manual and NPP GA-85 (the airfield pressure at the 1200 m transition level was set without the aircraft going into level flight, did not read the checklist, continued to descend at increased speeds without extending the flaps and landing gear). The crew, 58 seconds from the end of the flight, reported that the height of 500 m was occupied and the fourth turn began, being actually at an altitude of 700 m with a roll of 15 ° in the right turn with a course of 80 degrees and an indicated speed of 408 km / h, which did not give the possibility for a safe maneuver in order to reach the MKP = 225 °. After the report, the ATC dispatcher at 15:58:13 revealed the plane's bearing of 40 degrees, which indicates a violation of the approach pattern by the crew. The dispatcher did not report the bearing to the crew, did not take measures to prevent violations. The aircraft at an altitude of 530 m with a roll of 20 ° with Vpr = 355-360 km / h went into horizontal flight, which also did not ensure a safe end of the begun maneuver. At 15:58:49, the signal of the assigned altitude RV-2 of the radio altimeter worked, however, the crew did not transfer the aircraft to climb in violation of the flight manual. RV-2 was turned off at the command of the instructor commander. 

The aircraft in 15: 58: 56 MSK (22: 58 seats) at a height of 530 mv in a horizontal flight with the right bank of 22 degrees with MK = 126 degrees, at a distance of 25 km, with an instrument speed of 355 km / h and an azimuth of 51 degrees from KTA collided with a mountain, collapsed completely and partially burnt.
