He added that the EU was "always firm" on territorial integrity not only of Georgia, but also of Russia in the North Caucasus.

Georgian army assaulted South Ossetia on August 8th 2008, part of Tskhinval was ruined. In response Russia drew troops and after 5 days the Georgian forces left the region.

In end August Russia recognized independency of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In response Tbilisi severed the diplomatic relations with it and claimed the two regions the occupied territories.

The special commission, headed by Heidi Tagliavini [Switzerland] was formed under the aegis of the EU and officially started its work on December 2nd 2008. That commission was aimed to investigate reasons and circumstances of the conflict.

The report was intended to be presented on July 31st 2009, but was adjourned as new materials arrived.
