The Cauchy problem for the Fokker-Plank-Kolmogorov equation with a nonlocal nonlinear drift term is reduced to a similar problem for the correspondent linear equation. The relation between symmetry operators of the linear and nonlinear Fokker-Plank-Kolmogorov equations is considered. Illustrative examples of the one-dimensional symmetry operators are presented.

Key words: symmetry operators; Fokker-Plank-Kolmogorov equation; nonlinear partial differential equations.
