Russia made an offer to the then President of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, which provided for 10,000 soldiers and absolving the new country's foreign debt. This was reported by 20minutos.

It is noted that the investigation has two recorded conversations dated back to 2018. In a telephone conversation, a proxy for former leader Carles Puigdemont, Víctor Terradelles, told the head of the Spanish region that a Russian group was offering 10,000 Russian soldiers to defend the new state and its services in paying off the foreign debt of the newly established country. It is noted that Puigdemont refused the offer.

"If they had agreed, the events would probably have been tragic and would have caused an armed conflict with the state, which could have resulted in an indefinite number of deaths," the judge said.

As we reported earlier, on February 29, 2020, supporters of the independence of Catalonia gathered in the city of Perpignan (southern France) at the call of Puigdemont.

According to local authorities, about 100,000 people attended the rally, and the organizers of the event announced 150,000 participants.
