Sergey Zheleznyak: “Britain will have a painful adaptation after Brexit”

Britain will face a painful adaptation after Brexit, said Sergei Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, reports RIA Novosti.

This is due to the destructive activities of the Theresa May government. In his opinion, relations between London and Europe will also become tense.

“Obviously, the long-term relationship between London and the rest of Europe will become tense, despite assurances from both sides to maintain close cooperation,” the MP said, noting that for London the Brexit agreement is unfavorable and financially costly.

Today, the EU countries have approved draft agreements on the withdrawal of Great Britain from the EU. In particular, the leaders of 27 EU countries approved the separation agreement and the political declaration on the future relations of the EU and Britain.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the British Parliament should approve the text of the Brexit agreement agreed by London and Brussels. She also once again declared that she would not resign and would not allow a repeated referendum on Brexit, RIA Novosti reports.

London and Brussels began to discuss the conditions under which Britain will leave the EU, June 19, 2017. A year before, in the United Kingdom referendum, opponents of European integration won with a minimum margin (51.9% vs. 48.1%).

Britain will officially leave the European Union on March 29, 2019. The transition period will last until the end of 2020.
