The Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov refused to comment on the statement of its British counterpart Philip Hammond that the results of the referendum in the UK, which was won by supporters of the country’s withdrawal from the EU gave Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I have not received a medical education, so medical cases do not comment,” – said the Russian diplomat, responding on Friday to journalists (quoted by the website of the foreign Ministry).

The results of the referendum, Lavrov called “an internal affair of the English people”. “This is the will of the people of great Britain”, – said the head of the Russian foreign Ministry.

We will remind, earlier on Friday it became known that the supporters of a British exit from the EU (Brexit) won at the end of counting of votes cast in the referendum on June 23. For the country’s withdrawal from the EU voted 51,9%, for the preservation of EU membership is 48.1%. For Brexit spoke 17 410 742 against – 16 141 241. The voter turnout amounted to 71.8%.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul announced Brexit victory for Putin. And British foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has expressed the opinion that the decision of the British surely pleased the Russian authorities, forcing them to feel relief and optimism about the possible easing of sanctions.

Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov has promised that Vladimir Putin will comment on the results of a referendum on Brexit later. However, he added that the Kremlin does not link the exit of Britain from the EU, with a possible easing of sanctions against Russia. “This process regardless of the UK is in a rather controversial manner,” said Sands.

Previously Peskov said that the Kremlin was surprised by the use of Putin’s image in the discussions around a possible British exit from the EU. He commented on the statement of British Prime Minister David Cameron about the fact that Putin is allegedly “happy” in the case of “Brekzita”. The President himself, commenting on the words of Cameron, urged not “to fasten Russia to any problem” and “to make Russia some kind of a Scarecrow”.
