Protests Across Mongolia - Live Panel
Revelations have come to light that $12.9B worth of Mongolian coal has been stolen by government officials. The Mongolian people have taken to the streets in protest, storming Government Palace in Ulaanbaatar, and the future for the current administration now looks uncertain.
How will this impact Mongolia going forward, will the corruption finally be brought to an end, and how are Moscow and Beijing reacting to the protests? We ask our expert panel.
