Spain Judgement said that 10000 Russian Armany assisted in Catalonia. Russian Replyed ADD two Zero’s
According to a report by Russian Television Today (RT) on the 29th, in response to a Spanish judge’s claim that “Russia wants to send troops to support Catalan independence”
The Russian Embassy in Spain issued a statement that “if Catalonia becomes independent, The argument that they are willing to send troops to aid” is ridiculous, and the locals in Spain also mocked the so-called “conspiracy” with their own jokes.
The strange allegation that Russia plans to provide military assistance to help Catalonia “independence” comes from the judge Joaquin Aguirre of Barcelona, Spain, who claimed that
Catalan parliament held an “independence referendum” in 2017 There was a conspiracy involving an unnamed Russian organization. The organization approached supporters of the Catalan independence movement and proposed to mobilize 10,000 Russian soldiers to support Catalonia’s independence from Spain.
Aguirre claimed that the assistance was part of Russia’s plan to “support” the former chairman of the Catalan region, Carles Puigdemont, and the Russian Kremlin even agreed to help if the region declared independence. Catalonia pays its debts, and Puigmont rejected the offer.
Spanish police said they arrested 21 Catalan businessmen suspected of abusing public funds and laundering money, and found a recording on the cell phone of one of them, exposing this “conspiracy.”
The Spanish media hyped this inflammatory accusation, but the Russian Embassy in Spain did not seem to take the matter seriously. The Russian Embassy posted a tweet on social media Twitter, jokingly saying that these explosive allegations are “incomplete” and that the Kremlin actually proposed to send far more troops than originally reported.

The Russian Embassy wrote: “Two zeros should be added to the number of soldiers, and the most shocking part of this conspiracy is that (Russian) soldiers will pass’Fly’ and’Snub-nosed’ (Spanish Civil War)
The two Soviet fighter jets used during the period were transported to Catalonia and hidden in a safe place in Catalonia until they received an encrypted order to take action issued through these media.”
The arrest of the Catalan businessman and the subsequent investigation into the alleged failure of Russia’s assistance to Catalonia’s “independence referendum” also triggered protests in Barcelona.
Local protesters jokingly held up the Russian flag and sang the Russian folk song “Kalinka” to show their so-called “connection” with the Kremlin.
