BRICS is actively working on creating a platform for settlements in national currencies.
This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting of the association’s foreign ministers.
According to him, the United States and its allies use economic instruments as weapons, including sanctions pressure and financial blackmail.

The head of the ministry also noted that the West does not give up trying to maintain its elusive dominance. Despite the fact that the expansion of the BRICS is “a clear example of the formation of a multipolar world order.”

“Recent international events have thrown off the masks of those who have so far verbally claimed almost the exclusive right to define so-called universal values under the guise of a rules-based order,” Lavrov said.

At the moment, the BRICS includes 10 countries.
Recall that in August 2023, six new participants were invited to the association at once, including Argentina, but at the end of December it refused to join. Five new members of the association – Egypt, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia – began full-fledged work in BRICS on January 1, 2024.
