  Dmitry Muserskiy was born and spent his childhood in Makeyevka. ?? started playing volleyball at the age of eight under the guidance of Boris Osnach. His first club was Kharkiv, where he performed for “Jurakademia”,  before being invited to Belgorod in 2005, spending two years playing in the second Russian League for the “Lokomotiv” farm club.

In 2006 was called up to the junior national team of Ukraine during the championship of the EEVZA in Kharkiv, and took part in the European Championships in Kazan with Ukraine's youth team. In autumn 2006 Muserskiy played several matches for the Belgorod senior team in the CEV Champions League and showed solid skills for a newcomer.

During the 2007/08 season Muserskiy played for “Lokomotiv” (Belgorod) in the Russian Superleague, but before the start of their campaign he moved to “Metalloinvest” (Stary Oskol), another club in Belgorod system. But he was eventually drawn back to "Lokomotiv" in December 2008 and played the whole championship on the opposite position, winning the 2008/09 CEV Cup and getting a call up for Russia for the World League. Unfortunately Muserskiy didn’t make his international debut that summer because of health problems, but the followign year after a successful club season (fifth top-scorer and best blocker), Dmitry was once again called upon by Russia.

June 4, 2010, in Yekaterinburg, in his first match for the national team against rivals USA in the FIVB World League Muserskiy scored 13 points and was best scorer for Russia. As a result of the Intercontinental Round he was the best blocker (42 points, or 0.98 per set), third in the servers ranking (16 aces, 0.37 per set) and was the only central blocker of the tournament, who entered the top-twenty best-scorers. In the Final Round Muserskiy was brilliant in blocking once again - 16 points and 0.94 blocks per set. As part of the Russian team he won silver at the 2010 FIVB World League.
