The research paper covers a political cooperation between the BRICS member-states. Special emphasis is put on the joint actions of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa to combat modern global challenges, including international terrorism and climate change. Also, there have been examined factors which adversely affected political cooperation within the BRICS. In its turn, the first chapter is devoted to the main reasons for the creation of the BRICS association, which are both political and economic. The second one provides the analysis of the BRICS countries’ struggle with the international security threats. The equal attention is paid to the resolution of crises in the Middle East and the Indian-Pacific region. The cooperation of the BRICS participants in the field of ensuring social stability and energy security is also considered. The final part of the paper provides an analysis of factors limiting political cooperation in the BRICS format, including the problems of bilateral relations and the lack of will to further integration. According to the outcomes of the research the BRICS participants' interaction achieves the greatest productivity on global issues, while regional/local issues cause disagreements among the BRICS countries.
