Any idea what the grey object is that can be seen at the end of the video above the crash site?

Fire suppression? What ops were they doing and why was the video taker interested? Looks like a water drop (not retardant) occurred at apprx. 0.29min, but where is the fire activity?
Best wishes but pessimism for the crew. Fire suppression is a dangerous theatre for crews, such an important role needs more tech help.

A “flash” of light on the hillside at the 33second mark - looks like live powerlines hitting the ground ?

Why would you need 8 crew.

May have been a training flight. 4 pilots 2 Russian, 2 Turks = 4 plus FLIR operator ( perhaps 2). = 6 plus perhaps a flight engineer = 7 plus a translator = 8. Just speculation on my part.
A tragic event in any case.

the Beriev Be200 usually operates with 2 pilots and 3 additional crew members while on a mission:
- Pilot
- Co-Pilot
- Navigator
- Flight Engineer
- AMSS
thus there were a full 5 Russian crew + three Turkish guys from Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and Aeronautical Association on board.

Detail of the crash site

From the video in this article, the aircraft impacted steeply rising terrain in the centre of a gully.

Sad news, those Russian pilots are really quite brave.

I was caught in the thick of it in the great fires in Greece during 2007 where the Be-200 was tasked to assist.

Unfortunately it flew too fast to load up in choppy seas and just couldn't drop water from low enough levels in mountainous terrain to be effective, it was sent back as the Canadair CLs proved to be extremely precise. On a positive note, the Be-200 did look like it could deliver a quite a punch 100s km inland on flat terrain in minutes over and over again, much faster than a lumbering CL straining itself at max weight.
