Crew was performing an illegal flight, maybe from Belarus, with a cargo of Belarusian cigarettes on board. While approaching by night an unused airport, single engine aircraft crashed in unknown circumstances and burnt. Both occupants were killed. Up to date, the registration of the aircraft is not confirmed by Ukrainian authorities. UR-54853 was announced to be the one but this reg was already involved in an accident in Ukraine on 07FEB2013. The registration SP-AOD was still painted on the lower left wing and the aircraft was operated since Summer 2013 illegally with the UR-54853 registration.
