In an interview to IA «National news» political analyst, Professor of the Pacific state University and doctor of political Sciences Ildus Yarullin noted that the BRICS summit in India should help leaders to determine how the country will develop further policies together and continue their projects in the economic, financial and other fields:
«One of the main objectives of the Summit – as they say, «compare notes». Not to say that currently in the BRICS countries, which are Russia’s partners, has developed a calm and stable environment. These countries are in the zone of turbulence, primarily, economic. Of course, the whole world is now unstable and BRICS has its own situation.
Maybe Goa just now solved the question of how do we work with them to work in the same direction, to develop joint economic projects and financial structures.»
According to the analyst, BRICS clearly shows that Russia is not isolated:
«The summit is taking place in a situation where the U.S. is losing its position due to various circumstances – economic, and political reasons, and in the new oil prices and energy prices. Everything is unpredictable, especially in the atmosphere of war rhetoric, the United States, which aimed at Russia».
So now the main question to be resolved, according to the analyst, will the BRICS and the next created block. According to preliminary indications, we can do that. One of the indicators is to support Russia’s position on Syria by China and India, the expert said.
