Russia claimed that the referendum in Catalonia is the inner affair of Spain and that Russia does not accept the evaluation of the methods of its police. Spokesperson of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov claimed this as Lenta.ru reported.
‘We do not accept when somebody evaluates the work methods of the Russian law enforcement. We do not suppress our point of view, we talk about it’, Peskov claimed on the request to comment on the actions of the Spanish law enforcement towards the partakers of the referendum.
Earlier Spanish newspaper El Pais claimed that hackers from Russia help to support the work of the websites on the referendum for the independence of Catalonia citing the Civil Guard of Spain. The newspaper noticed that the supporters of the independence of Catalonia in Europe face the problems because all websites on this issue are not legal. The hackers use the resources placed in Russia to escape responsibility because the EU does not have the agreement in the digital sphere with Russia.
The referendum on the independence of Catalonia took place on October 1 but the central authorities find it illegal. The police started the fire attacks by the rubber bullets, 893 people got injured. The police of Catalonia reported on three dead in Barcelona.
