The methods of conformal field theory are used to obtain series of exact solutions of the fundamental equations of the theory of turbulence. The basic conjecture, proved to be self-consistent, is the conformal invariance of the inertial range. The resulting physical picture is different from the standard one, since the enstrophy transfer is catalyzed by the large-scale motions. The theory gives some unambiguous predictions for the corrections in the inertial range.
