Chairman of the Russian Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said that it is possible that Madrid might use force following Catalonia’s announcement of independence.
“It seems the game of nerves with an unpredictable outcome has begun, when the return to the use of force is possible,” he wrote on Facebook.
“I believe that both parties have made mistakes, and now their willingness to come to terms is less than a week ago, when there were preconditions for achieving agreements,” the senior Russian senator added.
Early on Friday the Catalonian regional parliament made the announcement for independence.
