Despite numerous predictions on UK staying in the EU the citizens surprisingly voted to leave. Ukraine has its own interest in the referendum outcome, according to Ukraine Today.

Russia may win a good deal on Great Britain leaving the European Union, since peace in Ukraine is supposedly set to become of less interest to Brussels, Ukraine Today reports.

And the member of Ukrainian delegation to PACE Volodymyr Ariyev believes that next year, PACE will steadily lift Russia sanctions.

The considerations of Ukraine-EU visa liberalization in the European Parliament and other European institutions may be postponed for several weeks or months, according to Iryna Gerashchenko, first vice speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

The only one to instill optimism is National Bank Governor Valeriya Gontareva who is convinced Brexit will not affect the hryvnia currency rate.
