EU is ready for a no-Brexit deal, however, the UK will suffer the most under this scenario, said the spokeswoman for the European Commission Natasha Bertaud.

According to her, the UK Brexit without a deal has never been the preferred outcome for the EU, Sky News reported.

EC did not see the need for additional preparatory measures in case of unforeseen circumstances at this stage.

“This will obviously cause significant disruption both for citizens and for businesses and this will have a serious negative economic impact. That would be proportionally much greater in the United Kingdom than it would be in the EU 27 states,” she noted.
