Russia Buriat (or Russia Buryat) is a Mongolic language spoken in Russia along the northern border of Mongolia. Dialects include Ekhirit, Unga, Ninzne-Udinsk, Barguzin, Tunka, Oka, Alar, Bohaan, Bulagat. It is heavily influenced by Russian. Russia Buriat is the official language of the Buryat Republic of Russia. The variety used in newspapers is that of the area around Irkutsk, west of Lake Baikal. The dialects east of Lake Baikal are less influenced by Russian and become more like Mongolia Buriat. Russia Buriat differs considerably from China Buriat and Mongolia Buriat. [Raymond G. Gordon, Jr, ed. 2005. "Ethnologue: Languages of the World". 15th edition. Dallas: Summer Institute of Linguistics.]
