The author announces the following result: A G-structure associated with a hexagonal 3-web W of codimension r given on (2r)-dimensional differentiable manifold is a closed G-structure of 4th order. This problem was posed by M. A. Akivis [see Itogi Nauki Tekh., Ser. Probl. Geom. 7, 69-79 (1975; Zbl 0549.53032)] solved by V. P. Botsu for \(r=2\) [On the isoclinical property of four-dimensional hexagonal three-webs. Deposited scientific paper - VINITI 5824-84, 27 p. (1984)]. The author’s proof valid for any r can be found in his paper [J. Geom. 35, No.1/2, 169-176 (1989; see the next review)] and [Itogi Nauki Tekh., Ser. Probl. Geom. 19, 101-154; VINITI Akad. Nauk SSSR (Moscow, 1987)].
