The youth of Buryatia are more committed to the values of adaptation and socialization than the youth of Mongolia. The youth of Buryatia are more committed to the values of adaptation than the youth of Mongolia. There are differences in individualization values in the subsamples of students from Russia: these values are more prominent in Russians than in Buryats. Revealed differences are interpreted as ethnopsychological features of young people and are seen as potential resources of tolerance development and systemic crisis of contemporary society overcoming.
