ABSTRACT

Since the 21st century, Russia has shifted to a new multilateralist foreign policy and actively participated in BRICS cooperation in order to hedge against the strategic pressure of the United States and NATO and to provide support for its national interests and international strategy. Through documentary analysis and historical research methods, this paper attempts to discuss the impact of Russia's political and social evolution on its diplomacy. Due to Russia's continued domestic economic woes, low political participation and cultural pluralism trends, the public's attitude toward Russia's participation in BRICS has shifted from eagerness to rationality, leading the government to become more pragmatic in its multilateral foreign policy, pursuing the realization of its national interests while building a new great power image through participation in global governance and public diplomacy.
