New paper by **Evgeny Khukhro (Univ. of Lincoln) and Pavel Shumyatsky (Univ. of Brasilia)** “Compact groups in which all elements have countable right Engel sinks” has been accepted for publication in *Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, section A – Mathematics*. The work was supported by Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, FAPDF and CNPq-Brazil, and stems from the collaboration with University of Brasilia.

*Abstract*: A right Engel sink of an element of a group is a set such that for every all sufficiently long commutators belong to . (Thus, is a right Engel element precisely when we can choose .) It is proved that if every element of a compact (Hausdorff) group has a countable right Engel sink, then has a finite normal subgroup such that is locally nilpotent.
