"Is mutually exclusive. The impression is that starts another round of tactics "highly likely". But I've seen the original. Apparently, after analyzing the experience of previous years, the British government came to the correct conclusion that the term "highly likely" no longer makes sense. Therefore, they used another term," - said Zakharov.
