American weekly: BRICS group beats the USA

More and more developing countries are considering the possibility of joining the BRICS group. In this regard, this economic community beats the United States, writes the American edition of Newsweek.

The author of the material, Tom O'Connor, recalls that Iran, Argentina, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt have already applied to join the group. At the moment, the group includes Russia, India, China, Brazil and South Africa.



At the same time, literally at the beginning of the week, Algeria filed a corresponding request, which, according to the expert, is an extremely alarming signal for the European Union. The thing is that the EU considered this country as one of the alternative suppliers of energy resources in the process of phasing out Russian exports. Now the Europeans have fewer options.

However, no less “painful”, only for the US, is the prospect of joining the union of Saudi Arabia, which was considered by the US administration as the main and, importantly, controlled oil exporter.

In general, according to the statement of Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Ryabkov, about 15 countries are already showing interest in the economic union today.

This dynamic, according to O'Connor, looks threatening to Washington. As the author of the article put it, despite the numerous contradictions between the above-mentioned countries, they are united in one thing - each of these states wants to develop outside the Western framework.

Recall that one of the fundamental goals of the Commonwealth countries is to get rid of the dollar in trade settlements and switch to their own currencies. This step will not only neutralize the US's ability to impose sanctions on "objectionable" countries, but will also seriously hit the economy of the former "hegemon".

      A platform for discussing interesting issues. Is this not enough for you in a world where many refuse to even just talk quietly?

      Well, yes, a difficult decision. And not without meaning from a military point of view. It's just a pity that this will be an epic wine for Hohlonatsiks

      Yes, I'm watching the news. Surovikin proposed, Shoigu approved.
      Sadness.
      I'm afraid that they decided to gain a foothold on these frontiers and agree to negotiations.
      Then really a foothold on the right bank is not needed.

        Surovikin proposed, Shoigu approved.


        It is clear, of course, that everything was discussed in advance, and not live ..
        Hence the question - who really "offered" ??
        The question is rhetorical ..))

          There is no doubt that this was discussed and agreed in advance.
          Too bad they forgot to add "as a goodwill gesture" for full effect.

      It would not be so disgusting if ours could do without the usual "We are here forever." Every time people believe less and less in it. Well, the loss of Kherson will allow the Ukrainians to continue milking the West for money and weapons, since there is a resounding success.

        there, another hundred kilometers to the Crimea - nothing at all - they can start naughty.

        PS they say on TV - yes, they retreated, but the losses of Svidomites are dofiga, 7 times more than ours ... like they retreated, but menacingly!

    The most important thing in BRICS is the community of developing countries OUTSIDE the Western framework.

    Considering that "the whole world" in the US edition did not exceed 20% of the population at all ... By the way, there are about 80% of the world's production in BRICS, not only in terms of population ...
    In general, it’s not about that the US has a headache. They need to think not about who is first, but about that. that they are isolated. They live in Chinese production, and China has been declared an enemy. On Russian resources - and the same thing. On the European sales market - and Europe was specifically set up ... In the neighbors of South America, and after Guaido - the entire continent threw off the pro-American governments, Bolsonaro was the last. Who is left in the store? Unsettled Canada, isolated Israel, a colony in Japan and Australia... Ah! Also Ukraine, yes, that's a lot...

    This is not the most interesting part. Putin will still arrange surprises.

      As one of the surprise options, cut off Ukraine from the Polish border.

    Well, the most terrible thing happened: Shoigu gave the order to withdraw troops across the Dnieper. Goodbye Kherson! The wheel of genoty has rolled, as the kakels say.

    I don’t know what this BRICS really gives, but this is one of our few successes ..
    Judging by the fact that so many countries have reached out there .. we have chances for a counterweight ..

    American weekly: BRICS group beats the USA
    . And what, they will unite into ... a group of interests, and then what?
    No one will stop cooperating, trading with their usual partners, this is not a geyrop union, which, at the command of a big brother, is ready to commit suicide...
    In general, the work is done for a long time, if it is done at all!
