In Russia, they came up with a “new big eight” against a break in economic relations with European countries and the United States. This was stated by the head of the State, Duma Vyacheslav Volodin in Telegram.
The economies of the United States, Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, and Canada continue to crack under the weight of the sanctions imposed against Russia. The rupture of current economic relations by Washington and its allies has led to the formation of new points of growth in the world. The group of eight countries not participating in the sanctions wars – China, India, Russia, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Iran, Turkey – in terms of GDP at PPP, it is 24.4% ahead of the old groupVyacheslav Volodin
The head of the State Duma assured that these countries “desire to develop dialogue and mutually beneficial relations with Russia.”
The United States created the conditions with its own hands for countries wishing to build an equal dialogue and mutually beneficial relations to actually form a “new Big Eight” together with Russia. “Sinking” in economic terms, the United States continues to create tension in the world. They do everything to solve their problems at the expense of others. And this will inevitably lead to the loss of hegemony in the world.Vyacheslav Volodin
Recall that in 2014 Russia was kicked out of the G8 due to the annexation of Ukrainian Crimea and the invasion of Donbass.
On April 7, the UN General Assembly removed Russia from membership in the Human Rights Council due to allegations of horrific rights violations during the aggression against Ukraine. Ninety-three representatives voted for the move, 24 voted against, and 58 abstained.
This was preceded by a meeting at which the organization discussed the war crimes of the Russians in Bucha and other cities near Kyiv, which were under the temporary occupation of the Russian Federation.
