As News Georgia agency reminds the mission includes independent civil and military experts assigned to make a report on the conflict causes for the EU, OSCE, UN, Russia and Georgia.
Swiss diplomat Heidi Tagliavini in charge of the investigation stated she needed more time as at the final stage of the work there emerged new materials (that require analysis), - Euroobserver web newspaper writes.
The mission's conclusions "can be politically explosive": if they contain direct reproofs to Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili for unleashing the conflict "this will reinforce Russia's and Georgian opposition's calls for his resignation", - it is remarked in the article.
In case Moscow's brought to account "this will damage EU-Russian relations and will have effect on Russia's participation in the international mechanisms of conflict resolution".
Tagliavini's request is subject to consideration by Foreign Ministers of 27 EU member states.
It will be remembered the Mission for Truth, with the budget of EUR 1.6 mln, was supposed to present the final report on July 31.
