Russia passed the weak India block
Russia had a straight set win over the low experienced India (25-23, 25-15, 25-14). Andrei Achtchev and Pavel Kruglov's spikes led their team to penetrate the Indian defense.
The first set was the best as India made it hard for Russia to win the set narrowly 25-23 after perfect spikes of the Indian best player Kumar Sanjay.
In the second and third sets it became easy to Russia to use their tall players specially Achtchev and Denis Kalinine to win both easily.
