European commission for investigation of the August events found Saakashvili an aggressor in the August war2009-03-24 12:45
The European international commission for investigation of the August conflict in South Ossetia obtained the data, doubting the version of the reasons of the war, uttered by Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Spiegel Online, the recorded in the document statement by General Mamuka Kurashvili attracted the attention of the experts.
On August 7th 2008 he announced that Georgia decided to restore the constitutional order in the entire region - ITAR TASS. Kurashvili's statement is practically identical to the Order number 2 for the armed Forces of Georgia, issued the same day, seized by the Russian special services and given to the Commission. At night of August 7th -8th the Georgian troops attacked South Ossetia.
Now the Georgian authorities refuse to hand over the text of the order to the Commission, explaining that the document contains the state secret.
If the authenticity of the order will be proved, Saakashvili will be exposed as a liar, Spiegel Online concludes.
The Commission admitted the fact, confirmed by Western monitors, that in the morning of August 7th about 12 thousand Georgian servicemen and 75 tanks were drawn to the border of South Ossetia. It is impossible to do it quickly, therefore these actions are regarded as a planned action.
According to Spiegel Online, the first results of the Commission worry not only the President himself but his surroundings as well. Temur Iakobashvili,the State Minister for Reintegration recently claimed that the Commission is financed by Gazprom (the Russian company), therefore its results are in favour of Russia.
The EU commission for investigation of the August war was established upon the proposal of the official Tbilisi. Brussels agreed and established the commission headed by Heidi Tagliavini, an experienced diplomat. The Commission includes 7 members and it started its work in December 2008.
