Renowned French security expert Paul Barril has let loose a bombshell: the existence of Operation Beluga, a covert Western intelligence scheme intended to undermine Russia and its leaders.
Is that what's behind much of the threatening rhetoric now going back and forth between the US and Russia?
Barril exposed Operation Beluga in a recent interview with Swiss businessman Pascal Najadi on the 2006 Alexander Litvinenko death case. Litvinenko was a reputed former spy who many believe was murdered with radioactive polonium on orders of Vladimir Putin.
Najadi says the interview drew out the converse revelation that Litvinenko was actually killed by "an Italian who administered the deadly polonium 210." What's more, he astonishingly says, the operation was carried out under the auspices of the US and UK.
In my books The Phony Litvinenko Murder and Litvinenko Murder Case Solved I've written about an Italian connection. But I can't confirm that Barril is talking about the same person.
Here's what Najadi told me:
"According to Paul Barril, Litvinenko was himself working for the late Boris Berezovsky [a Russian fugitive oligarch that made London his home] who, according to Barril, was in turn working for and with the British intelligence service MI6. Barril said, 'Litvinenko has betrayed his employers, Berezovsky and the MI6, and has pocketed large sums of money, millions of US dollars, that were destined for agent provocateurs within the Berezovsky clan. The sole goal was to globally discredit Putin and the Russian Federation. This Western intelligence operation was directed from Washington DC and London. Its code name is Beluga.'"
Barril's comments deserve serious consideration. A former officer of the French Gendarmerie Nationale, he's been dubbed "Supercop" in France. Barril is cofounder of the GIGN French antiterror group, and has also served in French presidential security. During his career he has led several private security companies, as well.
Najadi says, "These new revelations from Captain Paul Barril now open a new window to the truth about the motive for killing Alexander Litvinenko."
Litvinenko's death has been a hot topic for officials within British officialdom. A UK coroner's inquest failed to reach a verdict on the manner and cause of Litvinenko's death, even after the passage of almost ten years. Then a politically-motivated official inquiry was authorized by Prime Minister David Cameron. Its final report hypothesized that Putin was behind the death, but it failed to produce any credible evidence. (See "Six Reasons You Can't Take the Litvinenko Report Seriously")
Britain had accused two Russians of poisoning Litvinenko. But the UK prosecutor failed to make his case against them, claiming that he had only "grave suspicions" about who's to blame. Then there was the aborted coroner's inquest, and finally a report was issued under suspicious circumstances by a discredited judge who lacked the basic qualifications for conducting an official inquiry. (See "Britain Allowed Unqualified Judge to Decide Litvinenko Case. Now Inquiry Report Must Be Recalled" and "Discredited Litvinenko 'Judge' Sends Parliament Untrustworthy Verdict.")

Now the Litvinenko scandal takes on a new proportion. It's no longer just an incessantly long-running murder mystery. It just might be the telltale sign of an enormous geopolitical provocation that is wreaking havoc with world stability.
In the run-up to the American presidential election many of the candidates have talked very tough on dealing with Russia's role in the world. I wonder how many of them have bought into the Beluga scheme.

Litvinenko, Berezovky, Skripal ... CIA, MI6 False flags to blame Russia
GIGN is the elite police tactical unit of the French National Gendarmerie. Its missions include counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, surveillance of national threats, protection of government officials, and targeting organized crime.
Retired French GIGN officer Paul Barill says he not only knows how Alexander Litvinenko was assassinated, but his handler exiled tycoon Boris Berezovsky was killed to keep him quiet.
The operation's name is Beluga, and its purpose is to blame Russia.
Since Russia is harming the western plan in Syria and in many other cases, the western secret services try to discredit Russia by blaming it for crimes that are false flag assassinations.
False flag assassinations made by the western secret services and blamed on Russia.
Don't be deceived by the mass media and by the western propaganda, behind almost every big case, there is a lie, a huge lie, which is 100% opposed to the reality.
Wake up! use your own discernment, make your own search, investigate all the different views .... and come to your own conclusions.
Recently, the case of the former FSB agent Skripal, murdered in UK and blamed on Russia is the continuation of this operation, and illustrates the secret moves of the western forces to counter Russia
"The person who ordered the [Politkovskaya] killing is abroad," he said, adding that the journalist's murder was a "provocation" plotted by "forces interested in destabilising the country, changing its constitutional order, and stoking a crisis". These mysterious forces, he said, also wanted "a return to the old system where money and oligarchs ruled" and were interested in "discrediting the national leadership".
But human rights group were sceptical of the idea that Mr Berezovsky, who is based in London, had ordered the assassination. They were not convinced by the Kremlin's belated official explanation for the killing of Politkovskaya, 48, a fierce critic of Mr Putin, who won international acclaim for exposing the brutality of Russian forces in Chechnya.
Last night Mr Berezovsky denied any involvement in the murder but said he was not surprised that the Kremlin should hint that he was behind the killing. "Politkovskaya was not my close friend," he told the Guardian, "but she was my friend, and it was those who were angered by what she published who eliminated her."
The journalist was shot dead last October in the lift of her Moscow apartment block. A CCTV camera captured a young man in a white baseball cap enter the building a few moments before she was shot three times in the chest and once in the head....
Yesterday Mr Chaika said: "A native of Chechnya, the leader of a Moscow organised criminal ring specialised in contract killings was behind this."
But he also revealed that serving members of Russia's federal security service (FSB), the successor to the KGB, had a hand in her killing. They had worked with officers in Russia's interior ministry and police, he said. All had now been sacked.
In the weeks before her killing five law enforcement officers trailed Politkovskaya, collecting evidence about her movements. They then passed them to her assassin, Mr Chaika said.
The revelation is startling given that the FSB was headed by Mr Putin before he became president in 2000. But Mr Chaika ruled out the possibility that the FSB or the interior ministry had arranged Politkovskaya's death. "I exclude this absolutely. Every family has a black sheep," he said. He failed to offer evidence against Mr Berezovsky who the Kremlin accuses of being behind the murder of the dissident Alexander Litvinenko.
Instead Mr Chaika launched an elaborate attack on Britain, accusing officials of refusing to cooperate with Moscow's requests for Mr Berezovsky's extradition. "Unfortunately the British judiciary is not taking a very constructive stand on this issue which in my opinion runs counter to international law," he said. The Chechen-Berezovsky-FSB gang could have been behind other high-profile murders, including that of the American journalist Paul Klebnikov in 2004, he said....
Dmitry Muratov, Novaya Gazeta's editor in chief described the arrests as "serious" and said the suspects had been detained between August 15-23. They included "former and acting member of the siloviki" - Russia's military and security services, he said.
"These people in their free time and away from their main work ... carried out criminal businesses, including contract murders," he said.
