    Ukraine and Moldova are disappointed by the UK decision to quit the European Union, First Deputy Chairman of Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, Iryna Gerashchenko said Friday after a meeting with Moldova's Deputy Prime Minister Gheorghe Balan.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.

    "Ukraine and Moldova are disappointed by the referendum results and concerned about the growing number of eurosceptics in the European Union, however, Ukraine and Moldova are committed to the course of the European integration and reforms," Gerashchenko wrote on Facebook.

    She added that Ukraine would hold consultations with Brussels soon on the consequences of the UK's EU referendum for bilateral relations.
