Chronology of events:

With a decrease to the third turn up to an altitude of 900 m according to the approach scheme for the least short distance, the plane to the right deviated from the specified route and, following the altitude of 900 m in the clouds, collided with the slope of the hill, the height of 1190 m. In view of the error when entering the on-board computer The control complex of the coordinates of the last turning point of the route (153 ° 20 'SS instead 53 ° 20' SS) the complex lost the ability to perform functions to ensure navigation of the aircraft. The crew later did not use all the means of air navigation as a result of the evasion of the planned route. The air traffic control department of the radar flight control did not conduct, which made it impossible to detect evasion. The crew did not report on the passage of the control points, and the ATC did not demand such reports. The circle manager gave permission to decrease to 900 m, and the commander started it, despite the fact that he had no information about the location of the aircraft. Radio navigation on-board equipment was unstable. With a decrease in IL-76 entered the zone of continuous cloudiness. Crew height 900 m was in 23 km to the right of the route and in 45 km from the airport. This height was less than the minimum safe for the area. Four times in the last three minutes of the flight, the SOS worked, but its signals were ignored. The take-off mass exceeded the permissible value for 17 tons. Weight of the cargo according to documents (washing powder and meat products) was 44 tons. We did not weigh the cargo. In fact, the same weight was 57 tons! Takeoff weight exceeded the allowable limit for 17 tons
