Russian exile and Boris Berezovsky's close ally Glushkov found dead in Britain

Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead in his home in London

Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian businessman the United Kingdom refused to extradite to Russia on fraud changes, has died in his London home, his Russian lawyer Andrei Borovkov told the Echo Moscow radio station Tuesday.

Nikolai Glushkov was found dead Monday night.

They added there is no evidence to suggest the death is linked to the incident in Salisbury, where a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with nerve agent which the United Kingdom government believes came from Russia.

Glushkov died in his home in London, the Russian Vedomosti newspaper board member, Damian Kudryavtsev, told the Russian Govorit Moskva radio station, citing some "common friends" he had with the deceased.

Glushkov's close friend Berezovsky was found dead at his ex-wife's home in March 2013 in an apparent suicide, although the coroner recorded an open verdict.

Police and MI5 are expected to examine allegations that a series of deaths on United Kingdom soil, including the Berezovsky case, may be linked to Russian Federation.

The former deputy CEO of Aeroflot and close associate of Boris Berezovsky, Nikolai Glushkov, 68, has passed away. I have quite different information from what is being published in the media.

"Boris was strangled. Either he did it himself or with the help of someone".

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

Britain granted Glushkov political asylum, reportedly in 2010, after he had been sentenced in Russian Federation for allegedly embezzling millions from Aeroflot. In 2011, he gave evidence at the court case brought by Berezovsky against fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich, who remained on good terms with the Kremlin. He was sentenced to eight years in prison by a Russian court for the theft of millions of dollars from Aeroflot when he served as its director in 2017.

Scotland Yard says specialist officers are investigating because of "associations the man is believed to have had".

Glushkov continued to investigate the circumstances surrounding Berezovsky's death for some months.

The White House on Monday condemned the poisoning of the ex-Russian spy in the U.K."The use of a highly lethal nerve agent on U.K. soil is an outrage".
