2016-08-26 russian aviation authority gives an update about the history of flight:
K9 501 was attempting to land on the opposite runway 14L, but went around because of a shift in wind. The pilots then intended to land on runway 32R but eventually touched down 1200 meters past the threshold. Despite the long landing, the short remaining runway and the wet surface, no spoilers were activated. The pilots shut down engines 1 and 3 in an attempt to come to a stop in time, but overran.
