ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - A British exit from the European Union would hurt Britons much more than it would hurt the 28-nation bloc, the TASS news agency quoted Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi as saying on Friday.

“Of course it would be a problem, but it would be a small problem for Europe and a much larger problem for Britain,” Renzi told TASS in an interview on the sidelines of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.
