Kolmogorov's problem about the existence of a function with given norms of derivatives for classes of multiply monotone functions and absolute monotone functions in the case of an arbitrary number of norms is solved. The connection of Kolmogorov's problem with Markov's moment problem is shown.

Keywords: absolute monotone function, inequalities for derivatives, Kolmogorov's problem, multiply monotone function
