Ns News Online Desk: Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the Virtual BRICS Summit in Beijing on Thursday. By virtually attending this conference, he is practically back on the world stage. Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 at the behest of Putin. This is the first time since the Russian invasion of Ukraine that Putin has attended a conference of top leaders of one of the world’s most important alliances.
Putin appeared yesterday on the giant screen of a conference at the Great Hall of the People in the Chinese capital, Beijing. He attacked the West in his speech. He blamed the West for creating a global crisis.
Putin called on the BRICS countries to co-operate with Russia, accusing it of pursuing selfish actions against the West. He spoke in support of the US Alliance, but said that maintaining some independence was important for Russia.
Xinhua quoted C as saying that countries should reject the mentality of the Cold War. To stop the conflict, to oppose unilateral sanctions and the misapplication of sanctions. At the same time, to oppose a small group of authoritarian groups formed by a large coalition of believers in a participatory future for humanity.
Putin added that BRICS member states are working for “a truly multilateral world order” through mutual cooperation and international relations. The global influence of BRICS is gradually increasing. The BRICS member countries are Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
In addition to Russian President Putin, the opening day of the 14th summit of the alliance was attended by Chinese President Xi Jinping, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
According to an analysis published by the US media CNN, Russian President Putin has given a message to the West by taking part in the BRICS conference. The message is that Russia is not “alone” despite widespread Western sanctions against Moscow over its attack on Ukraine.
The West is imposing one sanctions after another on Russia over its attack on Ukraine. Putin himself has fallen under this unprecedented embargo.
The goal of the Western sanctions is to isolate Russia. Crippling the Russian economy. Weakening Russia. A few weeks before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, China announced that there were no “limits” to relations between Beijing and Moscow. Leaders of each of the BRICS countries have avoided direct condemnation of Moscow over the Russian attack on Ukraine.
