The State of Buryat-Mongolia[a] was a buffer Buryat-Mongolian state,[1] which existed during the Russian Civil War. It was established according to the decision of the first All-Buryat congress on 25 April 1917. The main government body was Burnazkom, the Buryat National Committee.[1]

After the collapse of the Soviet regime under the advancement of the Whites and the Czechoslovakian division, the State of Buryat-Mongolia was recognized by the Soviets in 1918, and later also by Grigory Semyonov's Government of Transbaikalia.[2] The state de facto ceased to exist after the formation of the Far Eastern Republic, which had divided Buryat-Mongolia in two halves: 4 aimags became part of the Far Eastern Republic, while the other 4 formed Buryat-Mongol autonomies of RSFSR.
