Ireland ordered out a Russian diplomat on Tuesday in the latest in a wave of expulsions around the world following the poisoning of a former spy with a nerve agent in Britain earlier this month.

“The attack in Salisbury was not just an attack against the United Kingdom but an affront to the international rules-based system on which we all depend for our security and well-being,” the foreign ministry said in a statement announcing the expulsion.
