    Veronika Veremyuk enjoys victory in Croatia

    Eight-year-old Ukrainian Veronika Veremyuk has won the title of the European Chess Junior Championship held in Croatia.

    The Kyiv-born girl scored 8 points out of 8 possible prior to the final match and secured the gold medal in her age group. In the ninth and final round Veremyuk is set to play white against Russian Alexandra Shvedova, who is trailing by two points.

    Veremyuk became Ukraine's chess champion in 2015 among girls younger than 8 (June, 2015).

    Two weeks ago, Ukraine-born Natalya Buksa won the Youth World Chess Championship held in Khanty-Mansiisk in Russia.

    Ukraine recently took top honors at the European Women's Chess Championship, with Ukrainian Natalya Zhukova beating off stiff competition to win the context.

    In April Ukrainian Mariya Muzychuk defeated Russian-grandmaster Natalija Pogonina by a score of 2:1 making the 22-year-old from the Lviv region the new Women's World Champion.
