Former Mongolian Leader Mocks Putin’s Ukraine Claims by Sharing Empire Map

In a recent interview, Russian President Vladimir Putin argued that Ukraine is part of Russia based on historical borders. Meanwhile, Mongolia’s former president Tsakhia Elbegdorj shared a map of the Mongol Empire, which included parts of what is now Russia. Elbegdorj mocked Putin over the weekend, pointing out that the Mongol Empire once controlled parts of Russia but was much larger than it is today.

Elbegdorj wrote on Twitter after Putin’s talk: “Don’t worry. We are a peaceful and free nation.” He has been vocal in his support for Ukraine and has condemned Russia’s invasion of the country. According to Elbegdorj, the world’s democracies must rally with even greater resolve to declare that freedom is non-negotiable and give Ukraine the weapons it needs to win.

Despite this, Mongolia has not outright condemned Russia’s actions in Ukraine. The country is located between China and Russia and is smaller than both nations in terms of population but larger in terms of landmass. Elbegdorj wrote in February 2023: “I know Putin does not tolerate freedom. I have sat with him on many occasions. He despises differences and competition. He fears a free Ukraine.” As a deep narcissist, he could not afford to see more successful and prosperous neighbors.”
