What Does Brexit Mean for Russia?

52 percent of British people voted to leave a European Union on Thursday and a outcome has already led to Prime Minister David Cameron’s abdication and a giveaway tumble in tellurian markets and currencies.

The referendum outcome caused a charge of comments on a probable tellurian impact of a vote, with a series of Western politicians expressing bewail over a formula and suggesting that a opinion would strengthen a Kremlin’s position in Europe.

In response to these comments, President Vladimir Putin pronounced that Russia did not meddle in a referendum and his orator Dmitry Peskov pronounced that a EU is an vicious trade and mercantile partner for Russia and so it is in Russia’s interests that it stays a vital mercantile force.

However, some saw a advantages that Brexit binds for Russia.

“Brexit can frequency be viewed by a Russian care as a disastrous event,” a Kommersant journal reported, citing Sergei Utkin, a unfamiliar process consultant during a Russian Academy of Sciences.

Although it is doubtful that there will be a poignant rider of a EU position on a Ukraine conflict, “Brexit in a finish will rage a ambitions of a European Union concerning unfamiliar process and enthuse a some-more useful proceed to doing business with outmost partners, including Russia,” Utkin said.

Britain will also be some-more meddlesome in negotiations with Russia “amid moving destiny talks with a European Union,” he added.

Brexit is a vicious conditions for a EU that might enthuse Europe to start reforms and correct a process toward Russia, though it will take time, a Vedomosti business daily reported Monday, citing a conduct of a Federation Council’s unfamiliar affairs committee, Konstantin Kosachyov.

British experts polled by Vedomosti, however, did not share a confidence of their Russian colleagues on a easing of Russia-EU relations.

“Vladimir Putin has reasons to be happy, a United Kingdom has always been a EU’s categorical hawk and has been a many vicious toward Russia. But Moscow should not relax: we are still in a EU for during slightest dual years, poignant changes should not be expected,” Steve Coulter, associate in a Political Economy of Europe during The London School of Economics told Vedomosti.
