BRICS SUMMIT: Ramaphosa Asked Putin Not To Attend - China, India Agreed (PICS) by WannaHowzit(m): 9:39pm On Jul 20, 2023
President Cyril Ramaphosa asked Russian President Vladimir Putin not to attend the BRICS summit but could not announce Putin's non-attendance before receiving support from the Chinese and Indian heads of state.

Ramaphosa, in a supplementary affidavit filed in a Pretoria court, said it was "moot" for the South African opposition party - Democratic Alliance - to continue its application to compel the government to state whether it would have executed the International Criminal Court's (ICC) arrest warrant on Putin.

This followed the Russian president saying he would not attend the Johannesburg summit next month.

Ramaphosa's supplementary statement was filed on Tuesday before Wednesday's announcement Putin would not attend by "mutual agreement".

In his affidavit, Ramaphosa said he first asked Putin not to attend Africa's Ukraine-Russia peace summit on 19 June, and the Russian leader said he would "apply his mind" to the request.

Three days later, Ramaphosa added he met with Brazil President Lula da Silva at the Global Financing Pact summit in Paris, France, and lobbied South Africa's position that Putin does not attend the BRICS summit, expected to run from 22 to 24 August.

He stated:

At this meeting [with Da Silva], the president of Brazil agreed that the preferred option, being that President Putin would not attend the [BRICS] summit in person, had his support. Ramaphosa said the BRICS formation worked on "a consensus" and buy-in had to be sought and received from all five member countries before a decision was taken.


On Thursday, Department of International Relations and Cooperation spokesperson Clayson Monyela said the government knew for a month Putin would not physically attend the summit.

Monyela added the delay was due to the ironing out of diplomatic issues.

Ramaphosa had consulted BRICS member state leaders of China, Russia, and India.

The president told the court by Tuesday, the department had not managed to arrange a meeting with China President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Ramaphosa asked the court to keep his supplementary affidavit confidential so as not to jeopardise the negotiations and consensus-seeking efforts.


The South African Sherpa to BRICS, speaking at the media engagement, Professor Anil Sooklal, said Ramaphosa had engaged with BRICS leaders regarding Putin's visit.

The BRICS ambassador labelled the Russian president's decision not to come as a substantial move which allowed the summit not to face threats of withdrawal like the G20 summit in Indonesia in 2022.

Other world leaders had protested the participation of Putin attending the summit, which prompted him to participate virtually.

Sooklal said the Russian leader's decision not to attend showed "maturity" among leaders to ensure the summit went ahead without threats of a walkout as a mutual agreement by participating leaders.

"The agreement, the president has done exceptionally well. This decision was not taken between President Ramaphosa and President Putin.

"Over the past several months, our president has engaged with all BRICS leaders several times. BRICS is a consensus basis; President Putin's absence at the summit impacts all the other leaders.

"This shows maturity and the strength of the alliance that we could come to a decision that, yes, President Putin understands the dilemma that South Africa faces, and he did not want to jeopardise the summit and create problems for South Africa," Sooklal said.

You and I know nobody can arrest Putin in South Africa... Even Biden know this...
It'll just complicate problem for South Africa, that's main reason Ramaphosa was begging him to send Lavrov...

Don't be too sure. Humans are unpredictable and anything can happen. Putin is not God, even he's close allied can betray him.

Mr knower, tell me what I don't know about Russia, what is it about Russia?
Apart from the large size of the country which they use almost all their resources to stock weapons what else is it about Russia?
What is it about a country that is not among the top five biggest economy, what is it to know about a country that's not even near the top ten highest minimum wage payers in the world.
Keep hyping nonsense.
I repeat, if e sure putin say he is a man, let him not chicken out and attend the meeting, na handcuffs dem go take throw am enter black Maria like they did to one terrorist in naija.
Nonsense.

Anyone who replaces Putin will be far more dangerous and iron handed than him. Medvedev will probably have ordered a full blown invasion of Ukraine by now or might have resorted to nuclear warfare. The main opposition party in Russia are hardcore communists which to Americans is even worse than having Putin in power. Prigozhin of Wagner pmc will carry-on the war as he has a lot to gain from it, same goes for shoigu and other Russian generals. Only a few Russian oligarchs will put an end to the war and trust me, they will not even smell the position of prime minister not to talk of president.
In conclusion, arrest threats from the west are empty shells as Putin remains the best option for westerners to end this war through dialogue or better still invasion of Russia (world war 3).
