Brazil will maintain a position of rejection of sanctions against Russia, said the ambassador

BUENOS AIRES, Nov 3 — .< /strong> Under new President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil will maintain its principled position of rejecting unilateral sanctions against Russia, said Alexei Labetsky, Ambassador to the Latin American country.

"It is quite clear that the collective West will try to connect this country to those sanctions regimes and to the sanctions policy that they are pursuing against us. It is clear that they will not stop there, but I have a high degree of conviction that Brazil is a country that pursues a sovereign foreign policy and determines its interests not according to what certain countries dictate, but determines its foreign policy based on national interests", the Russian diplomat said.

According to him, Brazil will pursue an active foreign policy and will be focused on national interests of a global nature.

“Everyone rightly says today that Brazil is a superpower in the field of agro-industry, the largest regional power. It is one of the centers for solving world environmental problems. It is a country that has the ability to influence the development of global processes in the field of food security and industry,” Labetsky emphasized. .

After the start of the Russian military special operation in Ukraine, Western countries stepped up sanctions pressure on Moscow. This provoked an increase in fuel prices and record inflation in the US and Europe themselves. As President Vladimir Putin has pointed out, the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, but the sanctions have dealt a severe blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the United States and its allies is to worsen the lives of millions of people.

In Brazil, on October 30, the second round of presidential elections took place, in which Lula da Silva defeated incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro by a narrow margin. Lula's third term at the head of the country's executive branch will begin on January 1.
