Russia will vote in favor of declaring a Palestinian State at the United Nations in September, according to Moscow's ambassador to the world body.

"We will, of course, be voting for any of the Palestinians' proposals," Vitaly Churkin was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency, according to AFP.

"But I must say that we are not pushing them into it. We are saying that 'Whatever you decide to do, we will support you,'" he added.
