The decision of UK citizens to leave the European Union will not have a significant impact on Russia, Former Russian Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said.
"Brexit has no significant impact on Russia. We have our own problems, which are more sensitive," Sputnik cited Kudrin as saying.
He added that following the referendum the European Union will come to senses, though both the bloc and the United Kingdom will get weaker in terms of economy.
"It is possible to regret the UK decision to leave the European Union. It will not be catastrophic, but there will be a temporary instability on the financial market," Kudrin said.
