Russia will continue to provide gratuitous military-technical assistance to Mongolia

The Deputy Director of the Federal service on military-technical cooperation of the RF Vladimir Drozhzhov paid a working visit in Mongolia. At the meeting the State secretary of the ministry of Defense, Colonel H. Batbileg and Mr. Drozhzhov signed a protocol between governments.

Russian federation and Mongolia agreed on prolongation of intergovernmental agreement’s validity on providing by Russia gratuitous military-technical assistance to Mongolia.

Since 2000 mutual relations have expanded, and since 2005 at the request of Mongolia Russia has started to provide gratuitous assistance to Mongolia in the form of military equipment.
