Foreign Minister of Britain said about decreasing pressure on Putin after Brexit

“I suspect that today he will experience less pressure and feel more cheerful,” said Hammond, speaking about Russian President Vladimir Putin (quoted by The Telegraph).

Today, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has called President Vladimir Putin a “winner” in the referendum on the British exit from the European Union.

“In shock from voting for Brexit! Losers: EU, UK, USA who believe in the usefulness of a strong, United, democratic Europe. Winners: Putin,” McFaul wrote on his page on Twitter.
