The insert of the production chain of pork from Santa Catarina in the international market makes it potentially vulnerable to the instability in major markets in the world, being able to influence the planning of production in the State. The latest refers to the Russian-Ukrainian crisis, which began in November 2013, with local reflexes in the pork chain. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the scale of the crisis in the pork sector of Santa Catarina, as well as its consequences on the corn market, since corn is the main raw material in the production of pigs. To assess this situation, we used the market reference and cooperation within the BRICS. The results show that, due to the cancellation of Ukrainian imports of pig meat originating in Santa Catarina, there was an increase in exports to the BRICs, mainly to Russia, which prevented the occurrence of more harmful effects on local production planning. This demonstrated the strength of Brazil's foreign policy alignment within the framework of cooperation with the BRICs in the definition and realignment of markets.
