April 19 – 28, the 52nd International Mendeleev Olympiad of schoolchildren in chemistry was held in Minsk.

The national team of Russia included 10 winners and winners of the All-Russian Olympiad of schoolchildren in chemistry.

At the closing ceremony on April 28, the names of the winners were announced. Russia won the first place as a team, winning 7 gold and 3 silver medals.
