MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. Moscow considers Brexit to be the United Kingdom’s internal affair concerning its relations with the EU, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday. However, in her words, Russia has been keeping an eye on the process.
"We believe Brexit to be the United Kingdom’s internal affair concerning its relations with the European Union," the diplomat noted. "Of course, we are assessing the possible consequences of Brexit that Russia could face, particularly, in the economic and financial fields, as well as in some other practical spheres."
"As for political assessments, this is what our analysts, journalists political scientists do who study global processes and make assumptions about the future of Europe and the future development of countries," Zakharova added. "We have nothing to do with Brexit because it is the United Kingdom’s internal affair, it is the British that are responsible for it as this process is related to their interaction with the European Union," the Russian foreign ministry spokesperson stressed.
"We are certainly keeping an eye on this process as we live on the same continent," Zakharova said. "We have relations with both London and Brussels."
