2. But this was a minor incident.

In a backwater embassy.

A private citizen took a delivery or business truck (not even a big rig) and rear-ended the gate. That's about it. The Irish guards watched--which probably just means they didn't gun the drive down in a hail of automatic fire.

It's a huge international incident against the oppressed, wronged, victimized Russians by the imperialist Irish Nazis.

Bomb Kyiv, annex Crimea, insurgentify the Donbas ... We got rights.

"They hurt our fence! The f**king bastards!"

Lawfare, in a sense.

Yes, it would be wrong for somebody to hurt the gate at the US embassy in, say, Nepal (do we have one in Nepal?). But it's not a casus belli or worth more than a memo or two. One to the host government, "C'mon, maybe put up some sort of barrier?" The other to your own government, "Maybe beef up the gate?"
