Share this article


The Russian Ambassador to Ireland says the expulsion of diplomats between both countries is 'not the end of the world'.

Yuri Filatov has suggested that some within the British Government may actually be behind the Salisbury poisioning attack.

The UK claims Moscow was responsible - something the Kremlin denies.

Ireland is among 29 countries who have expelled Russian diplomats as the fall out continues - while an Irish diplomat in Russia has also been sent home.

Speaking to the media this afternoon Ambassador Filatov says despite this, relations remain strong between the two countries: 'The incident is very unfortunate, but it's not the end of the world and I think we have a very positive agenda before us'.
