Russia: Brexit unlikely to affect EU sanctions

SOURCE: euobserver

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday that the UK vote to leave the EU is unlikely to impact Europe’s decision to prolong sanctions on Russia. The sanctions are to be renewed before 31 July pending parliamentary approval in France, Swede and the UK. “This [sanctions] process is discussed irrespective of Britain”, he told Tass. He said Russia “is interested in the EU being economically strong, prosperous, stable and predictable”.
