‘Historical and Contemporary Trends in the Development of Relations between Russia and Mongolia: Nearing the 100th Anniversary'
2 September 2021
On the whole, Russia and Mongolia enjoy first-class, partner-level relations

Relations between Russia and Mongolia, which have experienced a turbulent century of trials, must now step up to a qualitatively new stage of strategic partnership — Sergei Naryshkin, Chairman, Russian Historical Society; Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation.

Despite the chill that defined the development of bilateral relations in the 1990s, growth returned once again in the 2000s, thus establishing a reputation as the most stable in modern global history. I may state with confidence that the most stable relations in all of Russian foreign policy are those between Russia and Mongolia — Boris Bazarov, Director of the Institute for Mongolian, Buddhist and Tibetan Studies of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Cultural collaboration between the two countries, especially in historical studies and museums, is well-developed

We hold the work of Mongolian museums in high regard, Russian archaeologists continue to work with their Mongolian counterparts, and we plan to do many different things, such as holding large joint exhibitions, something we talked about during the visit of the Mongolian prime minister prior to the pandemic — Mikhail Piotrovsky, General Director, The State Hermitage Museum.

We intend to organize scientific conferences with archives and scientific organizations to study the theory and practice of archival research and to exchange experience in archival work — Sainzhargal Tumendemberel, Head of the Central National Archives of Mongolia.

The important role of collaboration with Mongolia in Eurasian integration processes

Mongolia plays a vitally important role in bringing together the Eurasian Integration and Silk Road projects. It would be impossible to talk about Greater Eurasia without cooperation between Russia and Mongolia — Efim Pivovar, President of the Russian State University for the Humanities.

Economic ties, including from the point of view of capitalizing on the prospect for transit, have been underdeveloped

We are also talking about the transit of goods through road and rail communications. We are likewise talking about creating opportunities for Mongolia to transport its products through Chinese territory on the one hand and through the Trans-Siberian Railway and BAM to Europe. And finally, there’s the creation of a logistics base in China for the transportation of goods along the Northern Sea Route — Efim Pivovar, President of the Russian State University for the Humanities.

Regardless of what we may say here today, economic ties are rather weak. If I’m not mistaken, Russia’s share in Mongolia’s foreign economic turnover is only about 10% — Victor Larin, Director, Institute of History, Archaeology and Ethnography of the Peoples of the Far East, Far-Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IHAE FEBRAS).

The Implementation of large, joint economic projects

The programme for creating the Russia–Mongolia–China economic corridor, the Russia–China gas pipeline through Mongolia, projects in transport, energy, and infrastructure as part of the Eurasian Economic Union, and China’s Belt and Road Initiative will play crucial roles in the new century of cooperation between the two countries — Chuluunbaatar Gelegpil, First Vice-President of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences.

Power of Siberia-2, with a capacity of 50 billion cubic metres per year, will drive relations for us in a powerful way, and cooperation will become permanent — Vitaly Naumkin, Scientific Director, Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IOS RAS).

The creation of a trilateral economic corridor will not only contribute to the development of Mongolia, but will also serve as an important infrastructure project for the future socio-economic development of Russia, Mongolia, China, and the other countries of Northeast Asia — Dorj Tuvd, Founder of Ulaanbaatar-Erdem University.
