Russian exile found dead in London

Russian exile found dead in London

When the oligarch Berezovsky clashed with Vladimir Putin in 1999, he fled to the United Kingdom and obtained political asylum.

Berezovsky, a powerful oligarch and one-time supporter of Putin who turned against his former protege, was found hanged in a bathroom at his home outside London in 2013.

Counter-terrorism police were leading the investigation "because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

"The death is now being treated as an unexplained", said London police."There is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury".

Nikolai Glushkov's death comes amid heightened concern following a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England and as the government said it would investigate the deaths of a number of Russia-linked individuals which have raised suspicions. Kudryavtsev declined to comment further.

Scotland Yard said in a statement: "Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 22:46 on Monday, 12 March to reports of a man found deceased at a residential address in Clarence Avenue, New Malden".

PUTIN critic Nikolai Glushkov feared being on a Russian hit-list five years before he was found dead with "strangulation marks" on his neck.

Officers are not naming him because formal identification is yet to take place. His family has been informed and a post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

Glushkov said: "You have the deaths of Boris and Badri over a short period of time. If there is a change in the status of the investigation, an update will be provided", the Met said.

The 68-year-old was a close associate of the late tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who died at his ex-wife's Berkshire home in 2013.

The death of Glushkov, who worked for Berezovsky's auto company as well as Russian state airline Aeroflot in the 1990s, was confirmed by his lawyer on Russia's Business FM radio.

Glushkov received political asylum in London and gave evidence in Berezovksy's court case against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in 2011.

Police said he killed himself, but his friends were less certain and a coroner recorded an open verdict. Natasha is believed to live in the UK.

Glushkov, whose body was found last night at home in New Malden, South West London, had been caged for five years for money laundering while deputy director of Aeroflot.
