B(R)ICS against Russia's invasion of Ukraine





BRICS, Russian invasion on Ukraine, geopolitics, global governance


This article addresses the issue of broadening the perspective of one of the main challenges of global security, which is Russia's invasion of Ukraine, understood as a revisionist act of the contemporary global security architecture, as well as the subject of relativizing the discourse on the shape of the contemporary global security architecture. The active subject of this discourse is the so-called BRICS, with an aggressor Russia in its ranks. The aim was to reconstruct and present the general overtones of the BRICS attitude as a representative of the Global South and to explain the strategic determinants of the perspectives of Brazil, India, China and South Africa in the face of Russia's arbitrary revisionism in Ukraine. On this basis, an attempt was then made to extrapolate the impact of this war on the prospects of the BRICS functioning in its campaign for the reconstruction of global security mechanisms
