The summit of BRICS 2022 is different as the scenarios are changed from previous years. The world is seeing this year’s summit from a different perspective. The dynamics of Russia and the Chain are changed owing to numerous reasons.
The year 2022 begins with several absurdities and changes in the whole world particularly, in the Russian Federation.

Since the war started, the economic impact of the confrontation lead to West-directed sanctions that ultimately triggered inflation in numerous states, global supply chains, and uncertainties of food shortages.
There are estimations and analyses that the BRICS states in diminishing the waves of the sanctions on Russia.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has been the most distressing happening of the ongoing year 2022. The war has taken Russia into abysmal numerous sanctions on international trade. The west’s sanctions on Russia have impacted the economy of Russia severely.
Nevertheless, the member states must take the resourcefulness to aid unindustrialized nations overwhelmed by the financial bearing of the war.

The president of Russia has voiced his views in his opening address,
“Contacts between Russian business circles and the business community of the leaders of BRICS countries have intensified. For example, negotiations are underway to open Indian chain stores in Russia [and to] increase the economic market share of Chinese cars, equipment, and hardware on our market. Russia is also ramping up oil exports to China and India, which have been snapping up barrels at a hefty discount.
China’s crude imports from Russia soared to a record level in May, ousting Saudi Arabia as the country’s top supplier. Russia’s system for messaging between financial institutions is open to connecting banks from the five countries, and Moscow is finding new ways to transact without relying on currencies such as the dollar or the euro. Together with BRICS partners, we are developing reliable alternative mechanisms for international settlements and emerging markets. The West has neglected the basic principles of [the] market economy such as free trade. It undermines business interests on a global scale, negatively affecting the wellbeing of people, in effect, of all countries.”
