Catalonia on the threshold of independence

48
According to information RIA News, the head of the press service of the Catalan government, Jaume Clote, announced that his head, Carles Puchdemon, had signed a law providing for the holding of a referendum on the independence of the autonomous community from Spain on 1 in October.



Previously, 6 of September, the local parliament approved the law on referendum by a majority vote: 72 deputy of the movements "Together for" yes "and" National unity candidates "supported the proposed draft of 135 elects at the voting 83, 11 people abstained. , The Socialist Party of Catalonia and the Centrist Citizens Party, which are going to appeal the decision, left the meeting room before the vote.

In addition to the opposition in the Catalan Parliament, the plebiscite is considered illegal by the leading parties in Spain and the government of the country. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy intends to challenge the adopted law in the Constitutional Court, in connection with which he requested the opinion of the State Council on this document. Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaría called what happened in the Catalan parliament a "shameful circus" and promised that the Spanish government would not allow violation of the rights of Spanish citizens.



However, the Catalan authorities believe that the referendum law will have "the highest legal force" over all other laws and regulations that will contradict it. In the event of a positive will, the results of the referendum are expected to be realized in 48 hours. Minimum turnout is not required. The question to be discussed is: “Would you like Catalonia to become an independent state with a republican form of government?”.

      The weakness of the central government, the lack of understanding of the interests of the outskirts, the imperial style of government has long fueled separatism in Spain.

        + Catalan nationalism, without which all sorts of "weaknesses" there - baby talk. That's who Ukrainians need to learn, these will not trifle in their pockets to poke. And the roots of the Catalans are deep - already from the end of the 8th century, which is documentarily provable (again, unlike lovers of hopak). So everything is adult here.

                    If there is no will and strength to keep their territories, then there is no sense in preserving such a state. We were able to do this, but Georgians, Azerbaijanis, Ukrainians, Moldovans could not. This is called justice because the GUAM nations did not achieve statehood, but received it on a silver platter. Russia has formed its statehood and territory in a thousand years, in addition to the military component, giving culture and the development of civilization. Therefore, GUAM is a club of failed states. In the EU, there is a mirror situation, as with the USSR, where a single ethnocultural center is formed, then all sorts of Spain, Holland, Britain are lower statuses, they are no longer centers of statehood, ethnocultural ties are broken, because of this the Catalans, volunteers, Scots, etc. Moreover, the bastards launched the process in the USSR and Yugoslavia, the latter being forced by force. Therefore, the EU in national politics will reap the storm that it has sowed. We recognized the sovereign state of South Ossetia, Abkhazia, annexed Crimea, so we are not going to ask anyone if they need to let them impose sanctions on themselves. Their whole essence is in global, interregional trade and politics. We are completely self-sufficient. Even the Soviet Union could not afford such a thing - its essence was also global, and the Russian Federation is forming a new world, the guarantee of which is its combat power, deposits and, surprisingly, agriculture. They depend on us for raw materials, we are no longer dependent on them for anything. There is nothing to put pressure on them, they have exhausted everything that is possible. And if so, then the end of their system is inevitable. Separatism and nationalism, especially against the backdrop of Middle Eastern and African torn, planted on the neck of European inhabitants. Therefore, the dismemberment of European states on a national basis is unambiguous, which is what started, and of course, the EU will also collapse soon and we will take them all warm. The Brexet of Britain solely out of fear after a rigged referendum in Scotland. The British are so trying to maintain their rotten monarchy, but this is agony. In the USSR, this passed, and the British passed, when they profiled all their colonies and could not hold the process by threats, or by bribery, or by persuasion ...

                        Ultimately, yes. The Cold War did not end, as it seems to some that the death of the USSR and the creation of the EU, including the debris of CMEA, put an end to it. However, let's call it the analogy with the highest point of the Third Reich, and the battle for Moscow, Stalingrad, had already been won, Peter survived. The battle for control of the Caucasian ridge was won, Crimea and part of Donbass were recaptured. The pendulum began to move in the opposite direction. They will have to pay for an attack on us. Everything goes to this. The Western bloc has already shown its helplessness, centrifugal processes and contradictions have begun, in the USA itself, the EU, etc. There are simply no charismatic leaders in the EU, both at the country level and at the level of EU structures themselves. The herd of sheep is not controlled by lions, but by the same sheep. It is always a harbinger of doom. There is a mass death of the creators of global society, i.e. really powerful personalities, like David Rockefeller, Elizabeth II (still in senility), Thatcher, etc.

                        You, too, should be aware that by supporting the collapse of Yugoslavia, first by military means, and then by political decision dividing Serbia, Europe itself opened the Pandora’s box.
                        Although there will be no separation, the whole of Europe is woven from contradictions and the collapse of one country will cause a flurry of separatism. This is why the result is not worth the wait. How can they be canceled in court, can it be a political decision, or is it still not clear? This is not advice to give Papuans from Eastern Europe

                The Russians did not emigrate but developed on the territory of Russia. And Kiev entered this territory with all adjacent lands. Kievan Rus was the beginning of the formation and growth of all of Russia from which Russia eventually entered the world. If you need more details, then you will find a lot of work with historical materials. hi Regarding the emigration of Russians, yes, some of the Russians really emigrated, but not to Russia, but, for example, to America. wink
