On Wednesday Queen Elizabeth II has accepted the resignation of Theresa May from the post of Prime-minister, followed by the appointment of Boris Johnson. Considerable changes in the Moscow-London relationships are not expected, according to the Vice-chairman of the Committee on International Affairs of the State Duma AlekseiChepa as reported to the Nation News.
The deputy says that Johnson can be regarded as an eccentric and temperamental politician, ready to take actions, nevertheless a “thaw” in the relations is hardly viable.
MP Chepa highlighted that, in his opinion, the possibility of any shifts in the relations between Russia and Great Britain is low, especially taking into the consideration that Boris Johnson was the one in charge of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs during the tension’s escalation resulting from the Salisbury incident.
The parliamentarian is expecting the British politician to be focused on the solution of the Brexit issues. Particularly, giving the first speech on 25th July the newly appointed Prime-minister has stated that Britain is not fully able to accept the withdrawal from the EU under the condition of hard Brexit, however the possibility of reaching the agreement of the deal maintains intact until October 31.
Chepa assumes that the new Prime-minister is capable of taking responsibilities for his actions, therefore the deputy suggests observing the situation.
