Circumstances:
Following an uneventful charter flight from Antalya, the crew completed the approach to Kiev-Zhuliany-Igor Sikorsky Airport in poor weather conditions with thunderstorm activity, rain showers and turbulences. After touchdown on runway 08, the crew started the braking procedure when the airplane deviated from the centerline and veered off runway to the left. While contacting soft ground, both main landing gears torn off and the airplane slid on a grassy area before coming to rest. All 175 occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair. At the time of the accident, wind was gusting to 57 km/h.
