UK Prime Minister David Cameron, having stated that “Putin will be happy” with the results of the referendum on leaving the EU, has a low level of political culture. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin on June 24th while concluding his visit to Tashkent where he hosted the SCO summit.
“I believe that this is none other than an inappropriate attempt to influence public opinion in his own country. Especially after the vote, in my opinion, nobody has the right to say something about the role of Russia. This is none other than a manifestation of a low level of political culture.”
Putin also noted that Moscow did not intervene in any way and never commented on the referendum. “In my opinion, we behaved appropriately and have attentively followed what is happening, but we have not influenced this process in anyway and we have never even tried to do so,” the president said.
Earlier, Putin stated that the vote in Great Britain reflects dissatisfaction with the state of security in the face of heavy migration, and a reluctance to feed and subsidize other weaker economies.
Supporters of Britain’s exit from the EU won in the referendum by a margin of 4 percent. Later, Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation, given his own desire to remain part of the European Union. He will presumably leave his post in October.
