At one point, it looked like the Ukrainian women would beat Russia 3-1. Ukraine had strong advantage on the top 3 boards while having a worse position on board 4. Lahno was the first to score for Ukraine on board 1. However, time pressure doomed Ukraine. Zhukova blundered and had to settle for a draw on board 2. Ushenina blundered and lost on board 3. Russian veteran Galliamova once again delivered a clutch win on board 4 to give Russia a 2.5 – 1.5 win.
1. Kosintseva, Tatiana 0-1 Lahno, Kateryna
2. Kosintseva, Nadezhda ½-½ Zhukova, Natalia
3. Kosteniuk, Alexandra 1-0 Ushenina, Anna
4. Galliamova, Alisa 1-0 Muzychuk, Mariya
