The paper analyzes the results of sociological research conducted in Russia and Mongolia in order to identify the views of citizens of the two countries on the Russian-Mongolian relations and the prospects for the Greater Eurasian Partnership. In Mongolia, a field survey was conducted in 6 aimags (n=692); in Russia, an Internet survey was conducted (n=624), which was supplemented by expert views (n=27). The results showed high indices of mutual positive perception of Russians and Mongols (⁓81) among the countries of Eurasia. The study revealed a high level of interest and awareness of Mongols about Russia. Highlighting the priorities of economic development, the respondents named them based on the specialization of their country: for Russia – industry, science, tourism, energy; for Mongolia – animal husbandry, industry, tourism, education. It shows the objective need for rapprochement and establishment of trade, transport and energy cooperation on the basis of the international division of labor. It is the pragmatic and friendly relations as a result of long-term ties that serve as the basis for intercivilizational interaction between Russia and Mongolia in the context of integration processes in Eurasia.
