    Britain may lose its AAA credit rating after the "Leave EU" campaign won in a historic referendum.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United Kingdom is likely to lose its AAA credit rating after voting in favor of leaving the European Union in Thursday's referendum, Standard & Poor's financial services company said Friday.

    "We think that an AAA-rating is untenable under the circumstances," S&P chief ratings officer Moritz Kraemer told the Financial Times.
