TO FIRST SECRETARY OF CC CPSU
comrade BREZHNEV Leonid Il'yich

TO CHAIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS OF USSR
comrade KOSYGIN Aleksei Nikolaevich

Dear Comrades!

Taking into consideration the deteriorating situation in the East, and the worsening international tensions, CC MPRP and the Government of MPR are taking measures to strengthen defence capabilities of the country. With the generous help from the Soviet Union we equip the Mongolian people's army with modern technology and arms, with the help of the Soviet specialists train the army personnel in new means of struggle.

However, these measures are insufficient in order to safeguard us from all sorts of incidents and possible sudden attacks. Our army units do not possess the means of detection, which would allow us to learn about activities of the enemy at a considerable distance from our territory.

Taking the aforementioned into consideration, and with the aim of further strengthening of defence capabilities of the MPR, CC MPRP and the Government of the MPR are turning to the CC CPSU and the Soviet Government with an insistent request to consider the question of providing a battle unit (formation) from the Armed forces of the USSR and maintaining it on the territory of the MPR at the cost of the Soviet Union, having supplied it with modern powerful military equipment and arms, housing, as well as cultural facilities, amenities and all other necessary items.

The place of stationing of a military unit and other concrete questions can be additionally discussed.

We are firmly convinced that the CC CPSU and the Soviet Government will look into our request with understanding and make a positive decision on it.

With communist greetings,

On the instruction of CC MPRP and the Government of the MPR

Yu. Tsedenbal
First Secretary of CC MPRP,
Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the MPR

1 December 1965
