Khimki guard Alexey Shved has been named the VTB United League's top Russian player in April.
This is the 4th season that the VTB United League will honor the top players from each league country, with the 2015-16 award winners to be announced at the end of the regular season.

An expert panel appointed by the VTB United League will determine the winners in the seven countries represented by one club (Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Finland and Georgia). The top player in Russia, represented by nine clubs, will be determined by league experts and media partner TASS. The results from each month of the regular season will also be factored into the selection.

Khimki guard Alexey Shved picks up the award in April. His team went 4-0 during the month (defeating VEF, Tsmoki-Minsk, Nymburk and Enisey) to finish 4th in the standings. Shved is one of the leaders on the team and averaged 16.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists while recording a 16.0 efficiency rating.

Joining Shved in April's Top 3, as selected by the VTB United League and TASS, are Krasny Oktyabr guard Viacheslav Zaitcev and Zenit center Anton Pushkov.

Nizhny Novgorod guard Maxim Grigoryev won the award in October, Khimki guard Alexey Shved earned honors in November and December, CSKA guard Vitaly Fridzon came out on top in January, CSKA forward Viktor Khryapa was recognized in February and Nizhny guard Dmitry Khvostov took the prize in March.

— The team's results are most important to me, — noted Shved. — We played well in April, without a loss. Now the most important part of the season is beginning in the VTB United League. We've got high goals. I will do everything I can to make our team better.
