Boris Bukreev was professor of mathematics at the University of Kiev from 1889. The university had been founded in 1834 and had, from its foundation, a strong school of mathematics. Vashchenko-Zakharchenko was teaching at Kiev when Bukreev was appointed and he had a considerable influence on the direction of Bukreev's research.

Bukreev's work was in the areas of complex functions and differential equations . He worked on the theory and application of Fuchsian functions of rank zero. Bukreev also worked on geometry, in particular he was interested in projective and non-Euclidean geometry . He studied differential invariants and parameters in the theory of surfaces.

Bukreev published a number of books which proved influential. In 1900 he published A Course on Applications of Differential and Integral Calculus to Geometry and, in 1934, he published An Introduction to the Calculus of Variations .

His most important book on non-Euclidean geometry was Non-Euclidean Planimetry in Analytic Terms which he published in 1947.

Bukreev was also interested in the history of mathematics.
