Slip at the start of the Moscow “Dynamo”, which in the offseason left a key player Ivan Zaytsev, the Italian passport, was short-lived, and now the capital club returns missed. The team was headed by the ex-coxswain of the women’s team of Russia Yuri Marichev, one of the few Russian specialists who know how to cook and men and women. Oleg Antonov in “Dinamo” remains, now as an assistant. Round 8 Muscovites have not met with resistance: at home, they took one of the outsiders from Orenburg, and even without the injured Sergei Grankin has decided the issue in 3 sets solely due to the physics and the game.

8 rounds only 1 point lost “Zenith” Vladimir Alekno. But this time the voyage was difficult solely because of the weather. Novy Urengoy volleyball players which are highly unusual in the championship table, often closes the airport because of bad weather, but this time the problem was they themselves Kazantsev. But those difficulties did not prevent: the victory in three sets.

Just wonderful acts “Kuzbass”. From Kemerovo, the team has two volleyball players from around the world: experienced binders Sergey Makarov and Nikolay blocking Apalikov who won almost everything with Zenit. And the first number – one award-winning at the youth level player, the brother of the origina Ekaterina Pankova, Pavel. Young binders in the game with the “Ural” scored mostly a huge serve.

No luck “Yenisei”, which landed in the trap weather in Moscow at the dock. To Samara is to fly nothing but a Blizzard forced the team more than 10 hours to wait for a flight to Novokuybyshevsk, which ultimately affected the result. More comfortable in these rainy days, of course, the owners of the site. So, the two contenders for the medals, Novosibirsk “the locomotive” Plamen Konstantinov and “Belogore” Gennady Shipulin took his glasses confidently.
