The former President of Mongolia showed, after an interview with Putin, who owned the territory of the Russian Federation in the 13th century
Former Mongolian President Elbegdorj Tsakhia published a map from the 13th century, on which a significant part of the territory of present-day Russia belonged to the Mongol Empire.
He did so in response to an interview given by Russian President Vladimir Putin to American journalist Tucker Carlson, in which Putin represented a full-scale invasion of Ukraine as an attempt to reclaim "historically Russian lands."
"After Putin’s talk. I found Mongolian historic map. Don’t worry. We are a peaceful and free nation," Elbegdorj wrote, addressing Putin.
As reported, the scandalous American journalist Tucker Carlson interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the Russian dictator articulated a series of narratives regarding Ukraine and Poland. In particular, he made pseudo-historical statements, denied Ukrainian statehood, and represented the full-scale invasion as an attempt to reclaim "historically Russian lands."
