247 – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday (28) that President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) was the main promoter of the creation of alternative payment systems to the dollar by the BRICS Bank.

“At the BRICS summit, a very clear task was set, and even a request was put forward – to give BRICS members and other developing countries that have grown economically and financially, to give them shares in the IMF and the World Bank that reflect their real economic weight,” the Russian Foreign Minister told the Sputnik news agency and Russia 24 channel. TV: “They don't want that, and it's another manifestation of how the United States is distorting its principles of fair competition.”

According to him, “Everyone is tired of the dollar, which has become a tool of influence, a tool to undermine the legitimate competitive positions of countries in various regions, and a tool to interfere in internal affairs and change regimes.”

In the interview, Lavrov noted that the 27 interested countries are “preparing to obtain at least the status of a BRICS partner country.” He explained that “it is impossible to accept everyone interested in the association quickly.” He stressed, “We will gradually introduce the BRICS culture into global politics.”
