Ukraine’s president expects Brexit not to influence extension of EU’s anti-Russian sanctions

Ukrainian President hopes that the results of Britain's referendum on its exit from the EU will not influence the further extension of the EU's sanctions imposed on Russia.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he hopes that the results of Britain’s referendum on its exit from the European Union (Brexit) will not influence the further extension of the EU’s sanctions imposed on Russia.

“I expect the sanctions against Russia as an aggressor state will be extended,” Poroshenko wrote on Facebook on Friday, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.
