"The helicopter was flying at too low altitude in thick fog and the pilot noticed the multi-storey building too late. Seeing an obstacle, the pilot took a sharp roll, as a result of which the helicopter fell on a nearby kindergarten", - a source in the department told the publication (quoted by TASS).
According to Strana, such conclusions are described in the preliminary data of experts investigating the disaster.
