Russia didn't even qualify in women's for this, so they shouldn't have participated. But that's FIVB for you and their gifts for the hosts. Just like in 2012 Russia had to host the final tournament.

well that happens with all hosts in olympic qualification events. Turkey had so many in boxing, wrestling, TKD and they were awarded also partipation in basketball that they didn't deserve it

This is completely different to being the host of boxing, wrestling... Nations had to qualify for this (by finishing 2nd or 3rd in continental cups). Russian men's team did that, but women's didn't.

 

And just because Turkey cheated their way to basketball tournament, that doesn't justifies this.
