The document was also handed out to representatives of other recipient countries: Georgia, the EU, OSCE, the UN.
The report has no fundamentally new conclusions, the European diplomatic source in the Council of Europe stated - RIA Novosti.
He added the document in relatively equal degree criticizes the actions of both countries: Georgia - for beginning of combat actions in South Ossetia, Russia - for escalation of conflict.
The source explained the EU isn't interested in blaming one side, as it will be counterproductive.
The diplomat added the report is based on the research by 30 European military experts and specialists in the field of law and history.
The Permanent Representative of Russia to the EU Chizhov, Russia expected the report to be objective. In his view, this report must "publicly clear the real timeline and real responsibility of Saakashvili regime for everything that happened, to the public opinion of Europe and outside it".
Previously Georgia Times reported that according to a diplomatic source in Brussels, the report authors impose responsibility for instigation of the conflict on Georgia, but accuse Russia's actions in its escalation.
The mission under the aegis of the EU officially started its work in Caucasus on December 2nd 2008. The report was expected to be ready on July 31st 2009, but the presentation was postponed on the request of the head of the mission, as she received new materials.
