|Abstract||This article examines the attitude of the inhabitants of Buryatia towards the Chinese living in the Republic of Buryatia and staying on the territory as labor migrants. The results of a sociological survey of 2018, based on questionnaires, focus groups and in-depth interviews, made it possible to characterize the ideas of the Buryatia population about the Chinese ethnos. Factors of interethnic perception are historical ties with citizens of the PRC, economic ties and the social background formed by the media. In the context of the policy of rapprochement and the prospects for interaction with China, constructive relations, readiness for bilateral cooperation and reduction of sociocultural distance are in demand.|
