Probable cause:
The accident with the An-2 agricultural aircraft RA-01443 occurred as a result of the destruction of the right main landing gear strut during landing, followed by damage to the aircraft.

Likely contributing factors were:
- unsatisfactory performance of the welded joint in the manufacture of the strut with the formation of welding cracks in one of the most stressed zones of the strut;
