Georgia’s assault on Tskhinval lead to the war in Caucasus - Tagliavini's commission

2009-09-30 18:01

The unreasoned assault of Georgia on South Ossetia became the reason of the last year's war in Caucasus, the report of Heidi Tagliavini's commission states.


Its authors came to the conclusion that having attacked South Ossetia in August 2008, Georgia violated the international law - ITAR TASS.

The commission also mentioned Russia's actions in response were legal at first - when they were of defensive character, but then went beyond reasonable limits.

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.
