As one of the only democracies in Central Asia, Mongolia remains a relatively small country surrounded by two geopolitical behemoths. Yet, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has shown Mongolia that nothing can be predicted and that it must be ready to face any situation. The support it provides to Buryats and others fleeing Russia indicates that it does not see eye-to-eye with Moscow’s aggression. 

Former Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj spoke out on September 23rd 2022 about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, calling on Vladimir Putin to end the war. Elbegdorj condemned the “killings” and “senseless destruction” caused by the conflict. His statement does not represent the official position of the Mongolian government, which is more restrained in its condemnation of Russia.
