The SCO-BRICS combined summit held in Ufa in July 2015 became an important step in strengthening Russia’s international status. If the BRICS summit signified a new stage in economic, above all financial, cooperation of the participating countries, the SCO summit resulted in a strategically important decision of enlarging the organization by incorporating India and Pakistan in it as full members. It may not only strengthen security in Eurasia but also counterbalance here a growing influence of China.
