BERLIN, June 24. /TASS/. Brexit will not influence directly on mutual sanctions of Russia and the European Union, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development Alexei Likhachev said on Friday.
"These two events [Brexit and sanctions - TASS] are not connected directly. Our measures are just a response to sanctions introduced against Russia," the official said.
"If the United Kingdom does not apply sanctions against Russia after the exit from the EU, a reasonable situation will emerge to cancel restrictive measures in respect of agricultural goods from the United Kingdom," Likhachev added.
In 2014 the EU introduced sanctions against Russia in connection with developments in Ukraine and reunification of Crimea with Russia and has repeatedly renewed and extended them since then.
