There will be no grand coalition against the West. There is a reason [ANALIZA]

However, this is an entirely secondary topic. The more important question is whether the goal of the BRICS nations — namely China, India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa, and soon many of the “Global South” — is to actually turn against the West and create an unfriendly bloc.

The speculation is fueled by numerous reports about China’s alliance with Russia, Russia’s military cooperation with India, and Brazil’s conservative approach in the context of the war in Ukraine. According to many Western commentators, these countries have a common interest in opposing the West, and their failure to openly side with Ukraine is a sign that they are conspiring against it.

There is a grain of truth in this approach, but only a grain.

– When BRICS was formed in 2009, it was suggested that it would be a powerful organization. Its mission was to strengthen the position of the “Global South” on the international stage, and primarily to undermine the Bretton Woods Agreement, the foundation of the West’s dominance over the global financial institutions – former Polish ambassador to India Prof. . Piotr Klodkowski.

The Bretton Woods Agreement was signed in 1944 and became the basis of the financial system in which the West led and the dollar was its most important instrument of influence and pressure. Although the so-called Bretton Woods system has undergone major changes over the years, the position of the US currency is still indisputable and Americans have much of a say in global capital flows.
