Putty closes automatically when logging in to droplet using private key


I’m new here, so sorry if I duplicated question. I registered FreeBSD droplet, generated ssh key pair, configured everything and now, when I try to connect to server, putty tries to authenticate and automatically closes window.

As I don’t have root password, I can’t connect from web console too, so I’m sucked. Can someone help me?
