Russian businessman, close associate of Boris Berezovsky found dead in Britain

Russian businessman, close associate of Boris Berezovsky found dead in Britain”

Police said the death was not linked to the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.

Boris Berezovsky was found dead in 2013 west of London, with a scarf around his neck, after fleeing to London in 2000 following a row with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Damian Kudryavstev, the editor of the Moscow Times newspaper, confirmed the news on Facebook.

A subsequent inquest failed to determine whether he had killed himself or died from foul play.

London police say counterterrorism detectives are leading the investigation "as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

Another Russian exile living in London was found dead late Monday night, just a little more than a week since a former Kremlin spy and his daughter were poisoned.

Glushkov told the inquiry that he bumped into Litvinenko in the office of Boris Berezovsky, a powerful oligarch an émigré who was found dead in 2013 on the bathroom floor of his home in Berkshire, on the western outskirts of London. "The death is now being treated as an unexplained".

Glushkov, who has been an executive at state airline Aeroflot and also worked for Berezovsky's vehicle company LogoVAZ, followed and was granted asylum in 2010.

Glushkov was sentenced in 2004 by the Savelovsky Court of Moscow to three years and three months in prison and released for time served, Russian news agency Tass reported. The court acquitted Glushkov on charges of embezzlement and money laundering. "I have quite different information from what is being published in the media", he said.

Billionaire and business oligarch Berezovsky later ran afoul of the Kremlin when he publicly denounced Putin and brought a lawsuit against his ally, fellow billionaire Roman Abramovich.

Russian media have contacted those individuals closest to Glushkov to find out the reason behind his death. [But] I don't believe it was suicide. Too many bodies are happening.

According to the RBK Russian news site, Glushkov was found guilty of abuse of power in a financial scandal at Aeroflot, and was convicted in absentia of fraud past year for allegedly stealing more than $100 million from the company.
