Russian Student Programmers Win International Contest

A crack squad of Russian computer programmers took advantage of the home terrain to win 1st prize at the world finals of the Association of Computing Machinery's International Computer Programming Contest in St. Petersburg this week.

The St. Petersburg National Research University of IT, Mechanics and Optics won the prestigious contest for the second year in a row. The top scoring US team was Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University, placing 11th.

According to the official website, "This year, 29,479 of the finest students and faculty in computing disciplines from 2,322 universities from 91 countries on six continents took part."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
