Russia and Brazil have more in common than meets the eye. Brazil is also the largest country on its continent. They love football there. Lots of beautiful women. Also, an economy similar to ours, a wealth of natural resources. Perhaps this is also why relations between the two states have been on the upswing in recent years. Why is Brazil called "tropical Russia"? How did they manage to become strategic partners? And why might distant countries share a common future? All the details - in the new episode of the "BRICS: In the Mirror of Times" project. The studio guest is Boris Martynov, a leading Russian expert on the history of Brazilian foreign policy and diplomacy, Head of the Department of International Relations and Foreign Policy of Russia at MGIMO.
The joint TV BRICS and GAUGN project received grant support from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science under the federal project "Popularisation of Science and Technology".
