The Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation made a decision that will make transfer activities of the country’s volleyball teams and registration of players much easier.

 

The Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation harmonized its regulations with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) agreement and informed that athletes from the countries that are members of this organization will not be considered foreigners in Russian competitions in football, hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball, water polo and field hockey. The EAEU member states are Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

It was a result of the EAEU court ruling that said restrictions on the participation of athletes who are citizens of the EAEU in national sports competitions were inadmissible.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
