British MIA is not intended to introduce sanctions against Russia in the case of Skripal until the process of the country's exit from the EU completes. Ben Wallace, Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs claimed this, The Telegraph reported.
The decision of the MIA is explained by the fact that the amendments to the British version of "Magnitsky Act", adopted earlier, should be made after Brexit completed. This will also allow developing new methods of sanctions pressure unacceptable right now when Great Britain must follow internal agreements of the EU.
The outlet notes that Wallace didn't specify the exact time of the introduction of the sanctions. The Brexit is scheduled for March 19, 2019, although, the transition period has to last till the end of 2020.
As it was reported earlier, Sadiq Khan, Mayor of British capital called to hold another referendum on Brexit.
