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.
