VIDEOS circulating on social media on Monday, December 5, reportedly show the moment protestors try to storm Mongolia’s Government Palace over the reported theft of billions of dollars worth of coal.

Multiple videos making the rounds on December 5 reportedly show protestors in Mongolia trying to storm the Government Palace in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar after it apparently revealed the country’s officials who stole $12 billion worth of coal.

Twitter account @Top_Disaster tweeted one angle of the incident alongside the caption: “In the capital of #Mongolia, protesters storm the Government Palace. They are demanding that the authorities punish the people who stole $12 billion worth of coal.”

Another angle of the protestors storming the steps of the building was shared by Wojciech Szewko, with the cpation: “Ulaanbaatar. Protesters break into government buildings.”

Top Ukrainian race driver and prominent reporter of Ukrainian and world events wrote: “Protestors are attempting to breach the Government Palace in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. It appears the main grievance is corruption.”

Further reports suggest that the protests were linked to a coal deal between Mongolia and China.
