Condolences– Yulia Zdanovska


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