Condolences – Yulia Zdanovska

The International Mathematical Union Committee for Women in Mathematics Committee (CWM)  deeply regrets the death of 21-year-old Yulia Zdanovska, who was a silver medalist at the European Women's Mathematical Olympiads (EGMO) in 2017. 

Yulia was a brilliant young mathematician with a successful future ahead of her. The young woman refused to leave Ukraine amid the war and, working as a volunteer, died in a fire caused by a Russian missile that hit her residential area in the eastern city of Kharkiv. 

CWM expresses its sympathy  with the family and the math community as a whole, united in mourning and honoring Yulia.
