MOSCOW, Russia – Russia’s Embassy in Madrid said on Friday that the claims made by Spanish media that Russia was involved in the crisis in Catalonia is devoid of reality.
“In both Russia and Spain, journalists enjoy freedom of formulating their own opinion, but our journalistic culture does not allow disseminating fake news,” it stressed.
Catalonia’s parliament declared independence on October 27 after conducting a referendum on October 1.
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy dismissed the Catalan parliament and called an early parliamentary election in the autonomy on December 21.
