Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Thursday that the British referendum on leaving the European Union will have long and traumatic consequences.
"We intend to closely watch how far the talks between London and Brussels will go and what will be the consequences [of Brexit] for Europe and us. The traumatic effect of the referendum results will be felt for a long time," Putin said.
