With a lot of humour it is argued in the article that Brics is a wonderful creature. It was a fantasy at first. A scientific term minted. In reality there was no such structure. Now it not only exists but also develops swiftly with active Russian participation. It accumulates negotiating formats. It starts to have a mounting influence on world processes. A token of further strengthening of the Brics is that it gives a lot to its members. That is why it is suggested that the best policy for the Eu would be to pursue really partnership policy towards mighty Russia and other Brics countries. In deeds and not only in words.
