You can read all details at this site with a link to an English translation of the report at the end of it. Bottom line, they knew about a flock of birds before takeoff, didn't retract the gear after the engine failure/damage, were prevented from stalling the aircraft(full backstick) by the high AoA protection, and selected the gear up when they were about to land in the field.

Thanks for posting this punkalouver. quite interesting to say the least. and so sad to read the conclusions and the end remarks on the regulatory battles still going on. . The efforts of MAK to bring Russia aviation into the 21st century were clearly visible until a few years ago in all ICAO meetings I attended .The traditionally old Soviet era bureaucrats only speaking Russian, were replaced by younger technically educated staff that spoke fluently English and knew what they were talking about. All that stopped in a sudden and sadly it looks like Russia has not let go of the old era where corruption and vodka prevailed.
