Annotation The article is devoted to the role of tourism in modern Russian-Mongolian relations. The object of the research is the Russian-Mongolian relations at the present stage of development. The subject of the research is the interaction of Russia and Mongolia in the field of tourism. The goal of the research is to scientifically substantiate the role of tourism in modern Russian-Mongolian relations. In accordance with the goal, the following tasks are defined: 1) to consider the potential of tourism in Russia-Mongolia relations in modern conditions; 2) to highlight the most promising areas of tourism in Russian-Mongolian relations, according to the results of an expert survey. Interdisciplinary approach and the method of comparative analysis are the methodological basis of the research. Tourism is presented as an important resource of the «soft power» of the state, capable of forming a certain image of the state. Along with political and economic cooperation, the tourism potential of the country has a significant impact on the development of relations between countries. As favorable factors contributing to the development of Russian-Mongolian relations in the field of tourism, one can single out the geopolitical position of both countries, a long history of good neighborly cooperation, common history and culture, the availability of tourism resources, and the establishment of a visa-free regime between countries. The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the current unstable situation in world politics had a negative impact on the tourism industry. The importance of expert consideration of some aspects of Russian-Mongolian tourism cooperation is associated with the identification of promising areas and trends in this area and the search for ways to solve existing problems. The potential of tourism as a tool of «soft power» is quite high. Improving the tourism infrastructure, increasing the availability of travel for the population, the availability of effective advertising on the international market, expanding the range of tourism products and services will help strengthen cooperation between Russia and Mongolia not only in the tourism sector, but also in cultural, socio-economic terms
Key words Keywords: Russian-Mongolian relations, tourism, soft power, tourism potential, image of the country, cooperation, cultural influence, image of the state, the geopolitical situation, advertising
