According to the commission, the possibility of a new confrontation in Caucasus remains serious.
The document also mentions that in the course of the conflict Georgian, Russian and South Ossetian armed forces violated international humanitarian legislation. It also states that long periods of escalating tension, provocations and incidents preceded the August conflict.
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.
