Florent Parmentier of the School of Public Affairs at Sciences Po in Paris talks about Brexit’s consequences for Europe and sheds light on the current state of Europe-Russia relations.

Russia Direct talked to Florent Parmentier, assistant director of the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs, research associate at HEC and founder of the website, about the impact Brexit might have on the European Union in general and what Europe and Russia should do to start the reconciliation process.
