Prof. Dimitry Kochenov (EU Constitutional Law) gave an extensive interview to BBC World (the Russian Service) discussing the possible impact of Brexit on the quality of British citizenship. While there is a number of options, all of them signify a serious loss of rights by British citizens as a result of the withdrawal from the EU.
The most sobering scenario involves a very serious deterioration of the quality of British nationality, showing a more significant fall, than the recent drop in quality of the nationality of war-affected Ukraine and the countries of the Arab spring. The most sensible option among the available remains the negotiation for the UK of an EEA-like access to the EU's internal market, which is bound, at the same time, to make Brexit a merely cosmetic exercise in essence.
