(BBC News, "Russian Ships off Ireland Coast are 'not welcome'", 01/24/2022)
Ireland has told Russia its plans to host live-fire naval exercises off the country's coast are "not welcome".
But the Irish Defence Minister said the country had no power to stop it.
It comes amid rising tensions over a build-up of Russia's military forces on the Ukraine border and threats of consequences
for any invasion from the US and its allies.
Ireland, however, has a long-standing policy of military neutrality and is not part of the Nato military alliance.
They are due to take place about 150 miles off the south-west coast of Ireland ... in international waters but it is also part
of the exclusive economic zone of Ireland... .
