What are ‚BRICS+‘ and ‚G7‘ today
„Question-Answer“ of 06.27.2022
Moderator: We needed forty minutes for this question alone. We have some more questions. BRICS, summits were held last week. They ask you to comment on them.
Valery Viktorovich Pyakin: Well, what can I say? This week has been really eventful and these summits reveal a lot. The BRICS summit precisely shows the five leading states that exceed the indicators of this notorious “G7” in terms of population and economic development. Or we’d better call them J7 (rather than G7), because they don’t deserve to be called any other way than J7 (like juice).
And what is the conclusion of the Financial Times? “The West is failing to isolate Russia.” They will fail to do so. Russia is running a normal policy. And Putin rightly said: “We are not expecting any special support. Behave normally, work for your state interests and everything will be fine.” Now the whole world is watching the confrontation between Russia and the collective West. Do you understand? The West has collectively declared a war on Russia and therefore defeat in this war will be a disaster for them. Why do they say “Now the end of the conflict will be a disaster”? Because the end of the conflict will be on Russia’s terms. Russia will remain, Russia will not be defeated. And for the West it is a disaster. Why is that so? They united against Russia and they completely failed?
Well, it must be said that this is not the first time. Take the year 1612. Did only the Poles attack us then? There was no one in the armies of the Polish magnates, and indeed not even in the Polish army. It was the united army of Europe. Let’s take the year 1709, the battle of Poltava. The Northern War lasted 20 years. Did we fight only with Sweden then? In general, we fought with the European coalition. Let’s take the year 1812. Did we fight with France then? Napoleon himself said during the invasion: “If in my army…” And Napoleon’s army included almost a million people: more than 400 thousand in the first wave, then reinforcements of 640 thousand came, and the rest, although not in Russia, but still connected with the Great Army. That’s almost a million. I do not call it the Great Army (Grande Armée), but the Numerous Army, as it was originally intended – it should be translated correctly. Did only Germany attack during the Nazi invasion? No. They always united and came to fight against Russia.
And it’s a real disaster for them. They would like to deprive Russia… In general, it is now very important for them to eliminate Russia, because if Russia resists confrontation with the West, then the Russia-centric world will be created, that is, the Russian world. This is a different model of globalization, a different model of relations between nations. It is a conceptual component, it is a concept of organizing life. The Russian world is an intent of the arrangement of life. And trying to reduce it to some gadgets is bullshit. It means not understanding at all what “Russian world” is, what “concept” is and what “management” is.
So they met and chatted. And it was immediately clear that an anti-Western coalition of the countries of the world was being formed. This means that those countries that once used to be colonies and were suppressed to the point of not being a threat, such as China, are now proving to be a very serious factor.
But the most important thing is that the BRICS format was created for China, but China does not have the conceptual strength of the global level of responsibility (they have the conceptual strength of regional responsibility), while Putin is conceptually powerful in the global sense. However, he is promoting Russia’s global policy, and Russia has enough resources to implement that policy. As a result, BRICS is developing exactly like a Russia-centric bloc, despite all those polite bows to China (mugs and all) – well, politeness is a must, especially in such conditions. By the way, India and South Africa are providing their resources to the association in this case. Brazil, India and South Africa – they ensure sources. China is supposed to be the world leader, Russia is supposed to be the technological center. But paper can withstand anything. Obstacles can be easily forgotten on paper. Well: China doesn’t really like BRICS because it leans too much towards Russia. At this moment, however, they have no much choice – either Russia will endure, or China itself will disappear. And in that case there will be no civilization on planet Earth at all. It’s getting serious here. And so China is going this way.
But BRICS Plus was held, too. There are 18 more countries. And Putin said very serious things. He confirmed again that Russia would not succumb to the onslaught of the West, that Russia was interested in building a completely different world, where every nation and every state should have their place, to preserve their cultural identities and to develop. And this is what suits all countries, especially the African ones.
