«The Kalmyks’ ethnic groups: information on zed (зөд) groups»
Oirats who came to the steppes of the Lower Volga region had a diverse ethnic composition, including Oirat, Turkic and Mongolian by origin groups. Many Turkic ethnic groups of the Sayano-Altai were included in the Oirats in the period of the Dzungarian Khanate. The analysis of materials on the ethnic group in the subethnos of the Kalmyk derbets allows one to draw conclusions about the Turkic origin of the group, which is also preserved in the legend of the ancestor of the genus. Comparative material on the Turkic peoples confirms our conclusions.
