As reported by Ukrainian mathematician, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor of Computational Mathematics at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Bohdan Rubliov, the Ukrainian team has won the European Mathematics Olympiad for the third time. The team of schoolgirls from Kyiv and Kharkiv beat Russia by one point and walked away with first prize.

The winning team:

  • Olha Shevchenko (Grade 11, Kharkiv, Gymnasium No.45);
