Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the new referendum on Scotland's independence can be held in the first half of 2017. It is reported by the BBC Ukraine.

According to her, if the United Kingdom will start the official process of exit from the European Union, without taking into account the interests of Scotland, the country is ready to hold a second referendum on independence. In Scotland, May says only agreed 'UK approach' to trigger EU exit

"Scotland would remain a part of both the United Kingdom and the European Union, even if the UK will go out of the EU", - she said in an interview with the BBC.

Recall that at the same time, some EU countries have already said they are opposed to negotiations between Brussels and Edinburgh on Scotland's possible membership in the EU.
