The Buryat Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (Buryat: Буряадай Автономито Совет Социалис Республика; Russian: Бурятская Автономная Советская Социалистическая Республика) was an Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in the former Soviet Union.

In 1923, the republic was created with the name Buryat-Mongol Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1958, the name "Mongol" was removed from the name of the republic. The Buryat ASSR declared its sovereignty in 1990 and adopted the name Republic of Buryatia in 1992. However, it remained an autonomous republic within the Russian Federation.

Buryat-Mongol ASSR in 1925.
