A few ideas about this interview from a Spaniard. First, El Mundo is a very important Spanish newspaper from MADRID, not BARCELONA. Second, admitting my English is poor, it is much better than the one from the journalist at the interview. I would recommend him to improve his English, as it is not accpetable for a journalist giving an interview in English. Ukraine made a huge mistake judging Putin, and has made another mistake considering Israel its ally. Ukraine and Catalonia have absolutely nothing in common, and Ukraine should avoid connect itself with any idea about nationalism. Nationalisms have been the cause of European wars in the last two centuries, and are still a source of huge frictions. Ukraine should learn from its mistakes and avoid extreme nationalism, including taking measures to make the minorities in its territory as part of Ukraine, beginning with those who speak Russian.

@Barruntaranchos, and you think Kyiv Post was going to publish something from an actual Catalan? Or Irish? Or Palestinian? Lol.

@JMiguel, My experience being in contact with Ukranian refugees in Spain is that they are much more nationalist than I would recommend. Unfortunately, Basque and Catalan nationalists have been much smarter than Sparniards telling their version of Spanish History, and support for that false version of Spanish History is quite succesful all around the world.
