BRICS Summit To Go As Planned Despite Putin’s Arrest Warrant

South Africa on Thursday said, “The BRICS summit will go as planned, amidst the speculation that it might be moved to China to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend.

The Russian leader, Vladimir Putin was accused by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in March of kidnapping Ukrainian children, and an arrest warrant was issued against him.

South Africa will continue to host the BRICS summit from August 22-24 in Johannesburg. On Tuesday, South Africa’s foreign minister said there had been no confirmation of attendance from Putin, though the leaders of China, Brazil, and India are all expected to attend the event.

South Africa has been attacked by the West for its neutral stance on the conflict in Ukraine. In May, the US ambassador publicly accused South Africa of being the rainbow nation of loading arms or related technologies onto a Russian ship docked at Simon’s Town naval base.

These accusations were later denied by President Cyril Ramaphosa who has been investigating the matter.
