„you should have thought about it earlier“- Vladimir Putin on Catalonia

EU countries bolstered separatist sentiment in Europe when they bowed to US pressure and supported Kosovo breaking away from Serbia. They now face such consequences as the Catalan crisis, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin says.

As for the situation with Catalonia, we have seen a unanimous condemnation of the independence supporters by the EU and a number of other states, Putin said. Regarding that, I have to say – you should have thought about it earlier.

Did they not know about centuries-old contradictions of this nature in Europe? They knew, didn’t they? But at the time they de facto welcomed the disintegration of a number of states in Europe, with undisguised relish, he added.
