Could have opened up the hangar door and parked it!
Hydraulics failure? No real need to run it on at that velocity though

Crew seemed over dressed for hot and humid. one was ready with the fire extinguisher so looks like they were waiting for the arrival.

Tail rotor issue? Can keep them pointed in the right direction with a bit of speed and throttle manipulation. Those with more knowledge should be able to help.

Looks like plenty of aft cyclic post touchdown, lucky to keep the tail.

Guys, I think it is deliberate (as in deliberate stupidity). Those Russians can be crazy. Looked to me that he practices this a lot, and the ground staff did not blink. And why would someone video what should have been a normal landing ?

Not for me ! (Unless, as mentioned prior, the hangar door was open !).
