From the Rosaviatsia statement the above quote appears to be the most revealing. From everything known so far it appears that the crew was mentally fixed on having a major emergency requiring an immediate return to terra firma no matter what, whereas what they had was a perfectly flyable airplane with some degraded non-essential avionics. The rest are just consequences.
