Commenting on the tension over the Catalan crisis, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said that EU countries bolstered separatist sentiment in Europe when they bowed to US pressure and supported Kosovo breaking away from Serbia, RT reported.

“As for the situation with Catalonia, we have seen a unanimous condemnation of the independence supporters by the EU and a number of other states”, Putin said.

“Regarding that, I have to say – you should have thought about it earlier”, Putin said at the 14th Annual Meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi.

The EU’s ‘unanimous support of Kosovo’s secession’ has demonstrated a defining moment, and Europe now faces the repercussions of limited approaches went for ‘pleasing the bigger brother from Washington’, Putin trusts.
