Baku. 24 June. REPORT.AZ/ Voting results on withdrawal of Great Britain from the European Union (EU) have a negative impact on the currency of both regions. The euro and the pound sterling in the global market sharply reduced.

Withdrawal of the UK from the EU assistance to various social programs, slowing inflow of cheap labor from the EU, a change in trade quotas and other economic factors will lead to a further decline of the pound sterling.

Brexit will create more serious problems for the Eurozone. The reasons for the depreciation of the euro associated with the possibility of exit from the EU's other members, that can destroy the EU.
