Russia assures Israel: Goldstone Won't Go Further

( Russia told Israel Sunday evening that it will oppose a discussion at the United Nations Security Council or at the International Criminal Court in Hague of the Goldstone Report on alleged war crimes by Israel during last winter's Cast Lead counterterror campaign in Gaza, according to Foreign Ministry officials cited by Ynet.

Russia made the reassurance even though its representatives voted in favor of adopting the report at the UN Human Rights Council.
