The Russia men's national volleyball team is governed by the Russian Volleyball Federation and takes part in international volleyball competitions. Russia won one Olympic Games championship in 2012, two World Cup 1999 and 2011.

FIVB considers Russia as the inheritor of the records of Soviet Union (1948–1991) and CIS (1992). The USSR Volleyball Federation joined the FIVB in 1948, a year after the foundation of the international governing body. The following year they sent a team to compete in the first FIVB Men’s World Championship and have been dominating the international scene ever since, having won six World Championships, six World Cups and 14 European Championships. All Olympic medals of the Soviet Union were inherited by Russia, but not combined together with the medal count of the Russian Federation.

History[edit]

The USSR Volleyball Federation joined the FIVB in 1948 and the following year they sent a team to compete in the first World Championship. They were soon regularly topping the podium at international competitions such as the Olympic Games, World Championship and European Championships and the World Cup.
