Russians' new defeat comes while the London 2012 Olympic Games champions were reeling from their Saturday routing, when they conceded to the white-clad Iran 3-1 (20-25, 25-16, 25-19, 25-23).

Iran's national volleyball team is leaving for Tehran tonight to prepare to clash respectively against the United States, Poland, and again Russia over the League's sixth through eighth weeks.
