Leaders of the BRICS countries have declared the illegality of sanctions against Russia

Today, in Australian Brisbane, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told reporters that all the leaders of the BRICS countries declared the sanctions against Russia illegal.

"They all said that the sanctions are illegal, that they violate the UN Charter and impede economic recovery," Ushakov is quoted as saying Reuters.

He stressed that the Russian side did not raise the topic of sanctions during the meeting. The leaders of the BRICS countries themselves touched upon it, "without any hint from our side."

In turn, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov answered a question from the media about a possible change in relations between the leaders of Russia and the United States after their brief meetings.

“Any contact at the highest level is of exceptional importance, but to say that after that we have a new perspective, especially in the normalization of bilateral relations with the United States, would be a sin against the truth. There is no such impulse. The responsibility for the stagnation in our relations lies entirely with the American side, "Ryabkov quotes Interfax.
