I most recently addressed our Heads of Mission, including our Ambassador to Russia, Ambassador McElduff, at the recent virtual European Heads of Mission conference held on 29 June. I have regular engagement with Irish Ambassadors across our Mission network as part of my role, as do my Minister of State colleagues and senior officials at my Department. Acting on my behalf, officials from my Department engage directly with our Ambassador to Russia on a very regular basis.
