Destination airport:?
The Antonov An-2R operated on a passenger service from Vaskovo, near Arkhangelsk, to Mezen, Russia, with en route stops at Soyana and Dolgoshchel'ye. On board the aircraft were 2 crew members and 12 passengers.
The flight took off at about 10:21 hours. While en route at an altitude of 150 m, at distance of 50 km from Vaskovo, the plane got into icing conditions. At 10:53 the flight radioed that they were returning to the departure aerodrome.
The aircraft could not maintain altitude and force-landed in a forest.

Probable Cause:

The accident with the An-2 RA-84674 aircraft occurred during a forced landing in the forest, the need for which was due to the impossibility of continuing the flight due to the effect of icing on the aerodynamic and traction characteristics of the aircraft (the inability to maintain altitude and speed even with the takeoff engine operating mode).

The contributing factor, most likely, was the decision of the crew to climb over 150 m from the ground level, where the presence of stratus clouds and icing was predicted.
