The lower house of the Russian Parliament defeated a motion to censor a Communist legislator for recent anti-Semitic comments he made. A senior Russian Embassy official in Washington criticized comments of Gen. Albert Makashov and said the legislator’s attitude does not represent the Russian government or the Russian people, according to Mark Levin, executive director of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry.
