Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that none of the BRICS members or the grouping's partners supported West's motive of inflicting a defeat on Russia on the battlefield.
On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that BRICS nations should play a key role in shaping a "new world order", as he criticised the US and its allies for "undermining the international financial architecture".

"We emphasized the need for consistent efforts in shaping a new world order, where the equality of independent states will be key," Lavrov told at a press conference folowing the two-day BRICS Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Nizhny Novgorod.

The high-ranking diplomat emphasized that the intergovernmental organisation's members and partner nations shared a "common view" that the grouping should take an active part in the reform process.

"It is well known that BRICS countries already serve as the locomotive of the global economy," the top Russian diplomat stated.

Further, Lavrov called out the Western powers for deploying "neo-colonial and unscrupulous methods" for manipulating the US Dollar (USD) basket.

Besides the global economic architecture, he highlighted that all the delegations which participated in the Meeting spoke on the necessity of "reforming the global system of international relations, based on the interests of the Global South".

Meanwhile, nearly 15 guest countries participated in a 'BRICS Plus' meeting amid growing enthusiasm in joining the grouping from Asian, African and Latin American states.
At the same time, top diplomats from Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) held multilateral discussions under the Russian presidency on Mobday.
A 54-paragraph joint statement released after the meeting criticised "unilateral coercive measures" and reiterated previous calls for reforming the global governance and economic structures, including the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
