There took place the opening ceremony of a bas-relief sculptural composition of the Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor Honoris Causa, Kharkiv University Professor, Honorary Citizen of Kharkiv, outstanding mathematician, leading geometrician of the XX century Oleksii Pohorelov. The event was dedicated to the scientist’s 100th birth anniversary. The author of the work is Oleksandr Demchenko.

The opening ceremony took place with the participation of the administrations of Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Kharkiv Regional Council, Kharkiv City Council, Karazin University, leading scientists of the city, and representatives of the general public.

The Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Chief Reseacher at B. I. Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering, Oleksii Pohorelov’s student, Oleksandr Borysenko spoke about the childhood, education, and achievements of the famous mathematician, his hobbies and preferences. He emphasized, “For 214 years of the existence of Kharkiv University, he was the first world-class scientist who studied in Kharkiv and, except for the war years, worked all his life in Kharkiv: first at Kharkiv University, and from 1960 to 2000 — at B. I. Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering.”

“Talented people have always lived in our city and they have significantly contributed to the development of not only Kharkiv and the region, but also the state and the whole world. Today’s event is an opportunity for all Kharkiv citizens to return to the world’s origins of science and understand that today its development is a priority. Therefore, we will continue doing our best to help science in Kharkiv flourish and live forever,” said Anatolii Babichev, Deputy Head of Kharkiv Regional State Administration. He also shared some memories of his school years and his favorite textbook written by Oleksii Pohorelov.

The University Vice-President Mykola Azarienkov also welcomed those present. “Oleksii Pohorelov is a glory not only of Kharkiv University, Institute of Physics and Technology, Sloboda Ukraine, but he is also the glory of the Academy of Sciences, the glory of Ukraine. I thank Oleksandr Borysenko for his initiative, as the realization of today’s event largely depended on him and his efforts. Oleksii Pohorelov will live forever, because his achievements will live,” said the Vice-President.

The event was also attended by students, colleagues, friends, and family members of Oleksii Pohorelov. They laid flowers at the bas-relief, shared their memories of the prominent scientist.
