As usual, pilot error to blame.

The pilots of a Russian airliner that crashed and killed 71 people failed to switch on a heating unit — leading speed sensors to ice up and provide wrong information, investigators said Tuesday.

the official statement didn't specify that it was the pilots that failed to turn the pitot heat on. All that was stated was that the heating was off without giving detail whether it was due to a pilot error or a malfunction. NY Post are really jumping ahead of theirselves

If you overreact and push the nose down, it will in return cause momentary weightlessness even further making one believe that you are in a stall and as such the recovery should be initiated.
I guess that I don’t see the automatic relationship between momentary weightless and believing that you are in a stall. But there again I don’t know the stall characteristics of the An148.

neither do I.. I was just speculating about factors that could have played a part in a potential loss of situational awareness ..
