The Foreign Ministry ruled out the participation of Western countries in the BRICS

BRICS will not include Western states conducting hostile policies in relation to Russia and other representatives of the organization. The participation of Western countries in the activities of the association is also impossible. This was stated by Deputy Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Ryabkov.

During a press conference following the BRICS summit in Johannesburg, the diplomat noted that one of the most important criteria for membership in the organization is the non-use of sanctions by the participating countries against each other.

As for the Western group, it as a whole and each of its members individually draw exactly the opposite line.

- noted Ryabkov.

Meanwhile, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the entry into the BRICS of six more states: the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Argentina, Iran and Ethiopia. The name of the association will remain the same as it has become an established "brand".

At the same time, the expansion of the BRICS is the defeat of the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the chief diplomat of the EU, Josep Borrell. According to the Zeitung newspaper, the entry of new countries into the BRICS symbolizes the decline in the influence of European structures and the Western world order as a whole. Europeans must recognize their geopolitical limitations and free themselves from the dominance of the United States.
