Abstract: A random polygonal line constructed from a sequence of series of homogeneous Markov chains is considered under rather nonregular dependence of their local characteristics on a series number. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the weak convergence of a random polygonal line to a diffusion type process. The conditions are expressed explicitly in terms of local characteristics of the Markov chains.
