GOST runs at less than half the speed of MD2. Speed, is of course relative. GOST can hash about 20 megabytes per second on a Quadra 950, but if you want to set up a system that hashes something every interrupt, this is quite slow. Also, for US software developers, while it is legal to export a cypher that you're only using in a hash function, many people don't want to take the chance. This is what is known to the lawyers as a "chilling effect."
