The Southern Mongolians in Sweden have been very active in the struggle for the Mongolian language movement and have raised awareness in public, contributing to the fact that the issue became an important event in Europe. However, the immigrants of Southern Mongolia were facing the risks of deportation. If deported in this way, there is a risk of many human rights violations, such as being punished or tortured for participating in political demonstrations against the country's government or government in a foreign country. One of them was a young Mongolian family with an Southern Mongolian husband and 2 children. The head of the family, Bulga, faced the threat of being returned to China, and there were many calls to protect him. Due to his struggle for human rights, Bulga was persecuted by the Chinese authorities, and 10 years ago he fled from the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region to Sweden. From the moment he arrived in Sweden, the authorities of this country refused to grant him asylum and ordered him to be deported. His family situation and the human rights situation reflected in the pictures.

In addition to the struggle for the mother tongue, one event that caused the frustration of Mongolians and the world was that the History Museum of Nantes, France,  in collaboration with the Inner Mongolia Museum in Hohhot, China, was preparing to release an exhibition about Chinggis Khan called "Son of heaven and the steppes - Chinggis Khan and the birth of the Mongol empire", but The Chinese government has stipulated that the words "Mongolian Empire" and "Chinggis Khan" should not be used at all, that the content of the exhibition must be controlled by the Chinese side, and that the stories, maps, and texts about the Mongolian Empire be re-edited by the Beijing Heritage and Culture Office and created in their own way. The exhibition was postponed until 2024, and the painting is described in this way in recognition of the support of the French side at that time.

The Nantes History Museum in France announced on Monday that it has decided to cancel its longstanding partnership with a Chinese museum after the latter attempted to rewrite Mongolian history and culture in an upcoming collaborative Genghis Khan exhibition.
