What Was the Impact of the Mongol Rule in Russia?

The impact of the Mongol rule in Russia was that the Russian people turned into a highly monastic people, the country was divided and made weaker, it was protected from powerful neighbors such as Hungary and Poland and was kept from western Europe influences such as the Renaissance. The highly monastic people were a direct result of the crushing severity of the Mongol rule that led people to look within themselves for a divine purpose for their suffering.

The Mongol rule kept the Russians isolated from other countries and took away power from the highest nobility as well as restructured the entire Russian army. This led to the inability for Russia to develop its intellectual pursuits, political parties or structure and economic system.
