The EU works pretty well in the good times, however, we are all aware of its failures every time there is a crisis,» Puigdemont said... Еще, commenting on the international community in the Catalan conflict. When asked about rumours of Russia influencing the Catalan process, Puidgemont said: «If you want to talk seriously about Catalonia, the Russia is not on the table.» Puigdemont arrived in Copenhagen in the morning, running the risk of being arrested, after a Spanish prosecutor applied for a reissuing of a European Arrest Warrant for Puigdemont's arrest.
