Georgia: EU-backed report 'proves Russia prepared war'

Georgia said on Wednesday an EU-sponsored report on last year's war with Russia proved Moscow had been preparing for conflict all along.

"The report proves that Russia was all the time preparing this war and August 7 and 8 were the culmination," Georgian State Minister for Re-integration Temur Iakobashvili told reporters, referring to the outbreak of the five-day conflict.

"The report is not about who started the war; the war did not start on August 7 or 8," he said.
