Russia’s embassy in Dublin reportedly asked the Irish government to intervene as it ran short of heating and hot water. 

The embassy’s fuel provider refused to deliver diesel, it said in a letter to the government dated March 22, according to the Irish Mirror. The embassy said other providers “refused to cooperate” and requested the foreign affairs ministry intervenes “into this clearly discriminatory case,” the newspaper reported.
