Relations between Ukraine and Mongolia have deep historical roots. Our two countries have a huge experience in different spheres of bilateral cooperation which date to the times of the former Soviet Union.

Following its independence in 1990, and the collapse of the Soviet bloc the next year, Mongolia established relation with Ukraine in 1992.
