I'm not a big expert in TeX and LaTex but I look into bibentry.sty
code and found that it redefines thebibliography environment. It uses
\begingroup and \endgroup commands and that means that
opens a block and \def command is not propagated into block. Package
gost should use \gdef instead of \def.

Try your code again and change \def in bbl file (before second run of
pdflatex) to \gdef. You see that there will be not error.
