The EU Delegation to Russia together with the Russian International Affairs Council organize a breakfast discussion at the Dostoevsky library on 28 February at 10.00.

The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 at 11 pm UK time, a little less than three years after the Brexit referendum on 23 June 2016, when 51.9 percent of those who voted supported the withdrawal. The British society and political elite remain divided on the issue. Prime Minister Theresa May failed to gain a majority in Parliament for the Withdrawal Agreement, which the British government and the EU 27 reached in painstaking negotiations between June 2017 and November 2018. The EU refuses to reopen talks about the deal.

Meanwhile, the Brexit date is approaching rapidly, and the risk of a “hard Brexit” is growing. About the consequences of the Brexit for the UK, the EU and for third countries, including Russia, will discuss: Nikolay Kaveshnikov, MGIMO University, Oksana Antonenko, Control Risks, London, and Sergey Kulik, Institute of Contemporary Development, Moscow.

This event is part of the 9th meeting of the EU-Russia Expert Network on Foreign Policy, an initiative of the EU Delegation to Russia in the framework of the Public Diplomacy. EU and Russia Project, in cooperation with the Russian International Affairs Council.
