Adding to the intrigue, Putin was unable to physically attend the summit due to an International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrant issued against him. South Africa, as a signatory to the ICC treaty, would be obliged to arrest him if he were to set foot on South African soil. To avoid this predicament, South Africa tirelessly lobbied for months to convince Putin to participate virtually instead. This arrest warrant has undoubtedly complicated Putin’s interactions with other BRICS nations.

However, South Africa, as the current chair of BRICS, refutes allegations that the bloc is taking an anti-Western turn under the influence of China and Russia. Instead, the country seeks to advance the agenda of the Global South through its active participation in BRICS. This is an opportunity for South Africa to promote its own interests while collaborating with other emerging economies, despite challenges such as the Putin arrest warrant.
