Comparison Studies of the Rate of Mongolian Conquests in Asia and Russia

The article examines the rate of Mongolian conquests in North China, Middle Asia and North-Eastern Russia.

Probably the conquest of Vladimir-Suzdal land was going on during more than a year but not a month as the Russian chronicles describe. This is proved by the special study of the chronological evidence of the north-eastern literary texts.
