The victory of Lulu da Silva in the elections in Brazil means that a front of states supporting Russia and China is forming in Latin America

Although Joe Biden congratulated da Silva on his election victory over the phone, saying that he "looks forward to continued cooperation between the two countries in the coming months and years," the leader of the United States should have been told that cooperation between the two countries, whatever it may be, will in no way mean assistance and support for Washington's position in countering Russia or China.


On the contrary, it was da Silva who at one time, together with the leaders of India, Russia and China, founded a new large international organization - the association of the countries of the BRICS group. Now we should expect that da Silva, already in the new term of his presidency, will continue to follow the same course - that is, to help strengthen the influence of this organization, which, in turn, will indirectly imply strengthening the positions of both Russia and China in the international arena.


It should also be recalled that earlier da Silva actively criticized the approach of the United States and its European allies to the military conflict in Ukraine. In an interview with the American edition of Time, he interpreted the Western glorification of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the latter's comprehensive support from the United States and Europe as a clear path to further fueling the conflict. “The US and its president will always have great influence in the world. Biden, if he wanted to, could have prevented a conflict by getting on a plane, flying to Moscow and talking frankly with Putin. This would be the approach that should be expected from a responsible and conscientious political leader"

Now da Silva, with the support of the entire left wing of the political movement in Latin America, can criticize the role of America and the West as a whole in the conflict in Eastern Europe much more seriously and harshly than before. Moreover, this position of da Silva is consistent with the position and policy of other leaders of Latin American countries, who also consider themselves leftists.

The President of another large and geopolitically important Latin American country, Mexico, Andres Manuel López Obrador, has also repeatedly criticized the US and NATO policy towards Ukraine, describing it as "immoral". In addition, the Mexican leader has also repeatedly stated that he is "not ready" to cooperate with Western countries regarding anti-Russian sanctions. Now, the victory of da Silva in the presidential elections will undoubtedly have a decisive influence on this position of the head of Mexico. With a high degree of probability, it can be expected that now in Latin America, left-wing leaders (such as da Silva in Brazil, Obrador in Mexico, Fernandez in Argentina, and Maduro in Venezuela) will form a united front of the most important states in the region, which will exert a noticeable influence on international relations, where much is decided in the confrontation between the two superpowers - Russia and the United States.
