He stated this in an interview with TASS.

“In terms of purchasing power parity, BRICS has already surpassed that of the G7: the association accounts for 35.6% of global GDP, while the G7 accounts for 30.3%,” the agency’s interlocutor said. 

According to Ushakov’s forecasts, by 2028 these indicators will change even more in favor of the BRICS, when the association will account for 36.6% of global GDP, and the G7 - 27.8%.

Earlier, Ushakov said that the West is undisguisedly jealous of the expansion of BRICS and is trying to undermine and weaken the association.
