Leader of Batkivshchyna political party Yulia Tymoshenko met with the former leader of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont at the 20th Annual Forum on Internal and Global Security, which is held by the international organization Crans Montana Forum in Geneva (Switzerland). Puigdemont announced this on his Twitter account.
'Today it's been a plesure to meet Mrs. Tymoshenko, the former Prime Minister of Ukraine. I wish her good luck at the next presidential elections in Ukraine,' he wrote and added several joint photos.
It is worth noting that Tymoshenko herself did not inform about this meeting with Puigdemonti n any way. There is no message on her Facebook page or on Batkivshchyna's official website. The politician's spokeswoman Maryna Soroka was unable to comment on this information, as she is now working in Kyiv.
Carles Puigdemont is a Spanish politician, a Catalan nationalist, a left-wing populist and a fugitive. From January 2016 to October 2017, he chaired the Government of Catalonia.
At the moment, the Spanish authorities accuse him of separatism, an attempted coup and the theft of public money. Now he is hiding from the authorities abroad.
