CHISINAU, July 5. /TASS/. UK’s decision to leave the European Union (EU) will have "tectonic" consequences for global geopolitics, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told a press conference after talks with Moldovan leadership in Chisinau.
"I have not visited Chisinau for more than two years. Over this time, many interesting things happened, such as events connected with UK’s decision to leave EU," Rogozin said. "This will have serious, tectonic consequences from the point of view of European geopolitics," he added.
As many as 51.9% of UK citizens (17.41 million people) voted on June 23 for leaving the European Union, while 48.1% (16.14 million) were in favor of remaining part of the bloc. The referendum is of non-binding character, which means that its results can be either endorsed or turned down by parliament.
Following the British referendum, a number of European leaders called on London to immediately begin talks on withdrawal from the European Union. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who announced his resignation after the referendum, said unequivocally it is to the job for a new premier who will take office by early October.
