«But, however, when in Catalonia the results of the referendum as the highest and most democratic forms of popular expression was inconvenient for them, they simply refused to accept them, but criticized the initiators of the vote, in fact, political repression,» — said the Director of the SVR.

In Catalonia on 1 October, a referendum was held on independence, which the Spanish authorities in the time of the preparation declared illegal. The Gagauz authorities declared that the majority of the population voted for separation from Spain, however, the Declaration of independence, the Parliament adopted only four weeks later, when it became clear that Madrid will not make concessions.
