It is too premature to speak about changes of anti-Russia sanctions regime once UK is officially part of the European Union (EU), a source in the government’s financial and economic bloc told TASS Tuesday.
Meanwhile Brexit’s effect on the sanctions regime will be within the margin of error.
“The effect of Brexit on sanctions is within the margin of error. Britain is one of 28 EU countries and still an official member of the EU, so it is too premature to speak about any changes in this respect,” he said.
Earlier British Prime Minister David Cameron said anti-Russia sanctions may not have been imposed without Britain.
At the referendum on June 23, 51.9% of Britons voted in favor of Brexit and another 48.1% chose to remain in the European Union. Global financial stocks plunged following the announcement of results of the referendum.
