The author expresses her notion about some historical events in Middle Asia and throws the light on a number of vaguenesses and contradictions in identification of Early Middle Ages states’ territories. The book is the result of a long-term research by L.A. Borovkova of ancient Chinese sources read in the original. It is a sequel of her former published by the Institute works: “The Kingdoms of ‘Western Region’ in II–I Centuries B.C.” (2001) and “The Kushan Kingdom” (2005) also embracing later historical period of I–II centuries A.D.
