She said that given that Eurosceptics and pro-EU activists were leading in different polls, and that in the Scottish referendum on leaving the UK the poll results were contradicted the referendum outcome, it was not time to call the result yet.

"Before the Scottish referendum , surveys showed that the majority was in support of Scotland's departure from the United Kingdom. Whereas, during the referendum, there was a margin of 10 percentage points in support of Scotland's staying in the UK. The effect may come into play during this referendum, as well. Therefore, social surveys are no longer trusted, people believe that they do not reflect the actual situation," the ambassador said.

"We are definitely not losing hope of Britain staying in the European Union," she added ahead of the Brexit vote timed for next Thursday.
