On May 21, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited the National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" and met with young scientists and representatives of the Minor Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.


The Head of State congratulated the scientists on the Day of Science, thanked them for helping Ukraine in the fight against Russian aggression and recognized them with state awards.

"It is a reward that we have you, that Ukraine has science and scientists. I would like to wish you victories in your research and Ukraine's victory over the enemy. You make a great contribution with your daily work and the introduction of technological progress, because the war is hybrid. Each of your help, each of your discoveries is an approach to the victorious end of the war," V. Zelensky said.

Among the awardees is Yulia Maksymiuk, a KPI student and president of the Student Parliament NGO, who, together with other students, graduate students and teachers of Kyiv Polytechnic, is working on the production of electric stretchers for evacuating the military and other much-needed products. 

Also, the President of Ukraine awarded young scientists from the Minor Academy of Sciences - student of the Faculty of Radio Engineering Angelina Dremova and student of the Institute of Physics and Technology Danylo Dorosh, who won prizes at the International Festival of Engineering, Science and Technology I-FEST2 2024, which took place in March this year in Tunisia. 

Volodymyr Zelenskyy reviewed the presentations of the works of young scientists and winners of the International Festival I-FEST 2 2024. Representatives of the Junior Academy of Sciences won 21 awards in eight categories.

The President noted that some of the developments of young scientists have already been successfully used by Ukrainian soldiers on the battlefield and emphasized that the state is interested in them and will support scientists.
