Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated on Tuesday that there are at least a dozen countries that want to join the BRICS alliance in opposition to the US-backed world economic order that is crumbling.

“Interest in this global association is very, very high and continues to grow. It’s not just Algeria, Argentina, and Iran. In fact, there are more than a dozen such countries,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday at a press conference in Moscow.

BRICS currently consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, but they are looking to expand their power at a time when the U.S. Empire is faltering, Europe is undergoing a massive recession, and the world is in deep turmoil. BRICS is emerging as a more stable solution for countries that do not want to accept decline and ruination as the norm.

“Since the applications are already being submitted officially, of course, we expect that working out the criteria and principles for admitting new members to BRICS will not take too long,” Lavrov said.

BRICS countries are posting impressive economic results as a result of their alliance. According to current projections, trade volume between India and Russia is expected to $30 billion in the near future. Lavrov appeared with Indian foreign minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar at the press conference.

“We discussed the situation that is currently developing around the attempts of our Western colleagues, under the pretext of Ukrainian events, to strengthen their dominant role in world affairs and not allowing the democratization of international relations,” Lavrov said regarding his meeting with Jaishankar.

Big League Politics has reported on how major economic powers like Saudi Arabia are considering joining the BRICS economic alliance:

The nation of Saudi Arabia is considering joining the BRICS coalition, consisting of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, as they divest from the Western globalist powers.

China and Russia are wooing Saudi Arabia and potentially Iran as they attempt to increase their power. The Saudis have become disenfranchised with the West, particularly after Biden assumed the American presidency and alienated them deliberately.
