Former US Ambassador : I have never had the question : who provoked the war

Former US Ambassador : I have never had the question : who provoked the war Normalization of relations can be discussed after Russia withdraws its troops from so-called South Ossetia and Abkhazia, - American diplomat John Tefft , who is former US Ambassador to Georgia, said in an exclusive interview with Kviris Palitra newspaper.

John Tefft said that for normalization of the relations Russia must step back to status quo.
The American diplomat recalled the August 2008 war between Russia and Georgia and noted that "it was not an unexpected development of events for the US embassy."
“It was clear to me that Russians were preparing something: all these military units, the railway incident and similar provocations did not do anything good. Then, just as today, I have no doubt that the roots of the further developed conflicts should be found in the period of this constant pressure.
We knew that the temperature was reaching the boiling point. I cannot tell whether it was surprising in Washington or Europe, but it was not for us. It was not an unexpected development of events for us, in the US embassy and we provided Washington with full information about Russia’s actions in Abkhazia and so-called “South Ossetia,” John Tefft said.
To the question, whether it was possible to avoid the war or not, John Tefft said: “"I know that some people criticize President Saakashvili for sending troops in Tskhinvali saying he should not have done it. On the other hand, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has recently said in the article, published in the Washington Post, that she had a phone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who directly told Rice that they planned to overthrow the government. I think Lavrov’s admission makes it clear that Russia was planning to do it. I have never had the question : who provoked the war and the further developments made me more convinced of my truth, "Tefft said.
