(C)  Poloff delivered reftel demarche to MFA Israel/Palestine 
Section Chief Vladimir Baibakov June 8.  Baibakov noted the 
GOR is still studying the European Commission mechanism paper 
and will provide its substantive comments in Brussels. 
Russia had taken pains, Baibakov noted, to ensure that its 
past assistance was channeled directly to PA President 
Mahmoud Abbas for education and health-related projects, and 
would continue to follow that same approach with any 
additional aid.  He said the GOR is thinking about a new aid 
package that would encompass education assistance and 
urgently needed items such as medicines and tents.  Russia is 
also considering how best to handle the question of 
Palestinian Authority salaries, Baibakov said.
