Yes, to lose under pressure is his old illness. The previous team captain after a few attempts refused to enroll him in the national team. Filima, the new one (after a pause in a few years) decided we have new Molchanov, but it turns he is the same In spite of 400 places difference in ranking...
Though it's need to tell that captain was forced to assign Molchanov for the 1st day: Stakhovsky hasn't acclimatised in cold Ukraine after paradise Guadeloupe, Marchenko has problem with fitness (his knee isn't 100% ready, especially for 5-setters)...
However, all will be OK for the Ukrainian team... after 3rd day

Good for Eriksson, unexpected win.

Vinciguerra and Ymer would've been the best possible singles duo for us imo, but it makes sense for both of them to not play DC at this point. Ymer is at the beginning of his career and Vinciguerra at the end. Let these national team players gain experience they can hopefully use on the futures level and start to approach the challenger level. They're fairly young after all and maybe some good coaching from Rosengren can maximize their talent.
