Here, 'interpose' cannot take the personal pronoun as an object. We interrupt a person, but we interpose a comment.

An interruption stops a process (at least momentarily). Interference forces it to change force or direction.

Interrupt in Verb form means” To make a break in, destroy the peace or tranquility of , interfere in someone else's activity, terminate “

In Computer Science “A signal that temporarily stops the execution of a program so that another procedure can be carried out “ is also an Interrupt(Noun)

Interfere means “come between so as to be hindrance or obstacle or get involved, so as to alter or hinder an action, or through force or threat of force”

Interfere usage
They should not interfere in our affairs.
