Narrative:
The An-2 lost height during a crop-spraying flight and impacted terrain between Yablunivka and Bubnovshchina, Russia.
Probably a first-aid kit which had been stored below the seat of the co-pilot got stuck between the steering column and the seat so that control over the stabiliser was lost.
