Exiled Russian Businessman Found Dead At His Home In South London

As Putin's opponents flocked to London, his spies followed

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.

Andrei Borovkov told Russian media outlets Tuesday that his client, Nikolai Glushkov, has died, but said he was unaware of the time and circumstances.

A former director of Russian state airline Aeroflot found dead in a London apartment on Monday was a close affiliate of the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky, according to local media reports, APA reports quoting AA.

Glushkov was found dead late on Monday at a house in southwest London's New Malden area. It did not identify him by name.

Glushkov was a close friend of another Russian man, Boris Berezovsky, who was granted asylum in the United Kingdom after he faced a jail term in Russia. An inquest failed to establish if he had committed suicide or died from foul play.

Police also said that they treat the death as "unexplained", adding that a counter-terrorism department is investigating the incident because of "associations" the deceased man is believed to have had, as reported by Reuters.

There is not now any evidence to link this case to the events in Salisbury where former spy Sergei Skripal and Yulia, his daughter, are still in a critical condition after being poisoned, reports Sky News.

Outside GOP groups - aware of the symbolism of losing such a red seat - poured in more than $ 10 million to bolster him up. Republicans are hoping to avoid an embarrassing defeat in a district that has voted Republican since 2002.

Glushkov once worked for various Berezovsky enterprises, including the flagship Russian airline Aeroflot and the LogoVAZ auto company.

Glushkov sought political asylum in the United Kingdom after spending five years in jail on charges of money laundering and fraud, charges he claimed were unsubstantiated.

There, he gave evidence in court against Roman Abramovich, another Russian oligarch who remains close to the Kremlin. They had been dosed with a military-grade nerve agent, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday.

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent believed to have come from Russia.

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course and the death is now being treated as an unexplained, the police said. "Those found responsible for this use must be held accountable for their actions".
