Russian term or phrase:обязательство
Маленков замечает, что Паулюс перед репатриацией должен будет написать документ правительству ГДР своего рода обязательство...
[Сталин]....Придется подождать, и лучше, если Паулюс позднее напишет обязательство.
Is this some sort of promise of "good behavior"? Something more serious than
writing "I wil not attack Stalingrad" on a blackboard 100 times ;-)
Urgent action to tackle a backlog of inquests into military deaths and to prevent any repeat of the decade-long delay in the case of Diana Princess of Wales, was demanded by Mr Hughes,
Calling for a statutory limit on the time taken to open and conclude inquests, Mr Hughes said: "Will you give some sort of undertaking that in this country in the future there won't have to be a nearly 10-year delay for an inquest as important as that into the late Princess of Wales, and years for people killed in the service of their country?"
I believe "guaranty" will work just as well
