The problem of the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transition in the highly frustrated XY kagomé antiferromagnet is solved. The transition temperature is found. It is shown that the spin correlation function exponentially decays with distance even in the low-temperature phase, in contrast to the order parameter correlation function, which decays algebraically with distance.
