Zebre notched their second win in Pool 4 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup but were made to fight hard to secure the points.
Their Russian opponents were a match for the Italian side in the first-half which ended with the scores locked at 14-14.
But the visitors slowly took charge after the interval with fly-half Carlo Canna taking his tally to four penalties and a conversion.
