Parliamentary commission published report on August events2008-12-19 13:36
Interim parliamentary commission for investigation of the August events has published its report comprising 200 printed pages plus audio, photo and video materials attached.
According to the commission's report Russia executed a well-prepared and preplanned intervention but the Georgian government's actions were inadequate displaying serious deficiencies in policy and management.
The commission has established that the Georgian intelligence had information on the aggression being prepared but despite this Georgia's government was not ready to what happened in August.
It is especially emphasized in the report that the Council of National Security could not carry out a proper and timely analysis of the expected situation and on the morning of August 7 had to operate under a condition of force majeure.
The commission believes that strategic process management under crisis conditions was not administered in due manner, there was no proper coordination between various parts of the government; management was done in violation of the emergency rules.
Abkhazia's legitimate government acted in complete neglect of the established rules at the time of the war. The commission will refer to the Prosecutor-General's Office for legal response to the actions of Malkhaz Akishbay's government. Besides the Prosecutor-General's Office will be asked to study appropriateness of the Energy Minister actions who did not react duly to the information on the invasion of the country, as well as the actions of Georgia's ambassador to Russia who displayed negligence and did not inform the Foreign Minister officials on the expected threats on the part of Russia in his reports.
The commission has most claims and comments to the defense sector. The serious problems were revealed in the military communication system and military actions management. Due to misguided management such an important resource as the reserve of the Armed Forces was not used, the Defense Ministry turned to be unprepared from the point of view of communications and did not coordinate the process of information transmittal. There was no strategic planning in defense; faults have been found with the officer personnel policy.
The commission will hand over the data on military procurement done by Georgia's government over recent years including air defense units that turned to be scarce to the parliamentary trust group.
