Its a miracle, Salute that pilot! Must have balls of steel to maintain his cool and land the plane safely, i assume it is not a passenger carrying flight right? What a ride that would have been! I would have shat my pants to be honest.

So, what would be a possible cause for that kind of control problem?

In this case the men dominates the machine.

Scaring. I can imagine the pilots inside the cockpit. nIteresting note is that the aircraft was in its maiden flight after a long time storage in the russian airfield.

More seriously, it looks like a really bad dutch roll. IMO a control damper malfunction could have led to this more than uncomfortable situation. I guess it was a few minutes before pilots were able to stand up from their sweat soaked seats !
