Moscow, Russia, April 27, 2016.

This victory accounts for Dinamo’s fourth national league title since 1992 – and the eighteenth in total by taking into consideration those that the club from Russia’s capital claimed in Soviet times. Dinamo KRASNODAR settled for third place by edging pre-favourites Dinamo KAZAN 3-2 in the bronze medal match, thus claiming the last spot available to compete in the next edition of the CEV Volleyball Champions League.

After carrying out activities in a number of pre-schools, PGE Atom Trefl SOPOT organised a couple of workshops focussing on road safety, and these were specifically addressed to young pupils from local primary schools. The first one was held at the end of March, whilst the second such workshop took place one month later.
