In 1939, Manchuria was a client state of Japan, known as Manchukuo. The Japanese maintained that the border between the two states was the Halha River (also known in Russian as the Halhin Gol, or the Khalkhin Gol), while the Mongolians and their Russian allies maintained that it ran some 16 kilometres (10 miles) east of the river, just east of Nomonhan village.
