Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead at his London home | United Kingdom news

Nikolai Glushkov

Police were quick to suggest there is now no evidence to link the death to events in Salisbury, where the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a weapons-grade nerve agent that was only ever produced in Russian Federation.

Glushkov told the inquiry that he bumped into Litvinenko in the office of Boris Berezovsky, a powerful oligarch and émigré who was found dead in 2013 on the bathroom floor of his home in Berkshire, on the western outskirts of London.

Speaking after Mr Berezovsky's death, Mr Glushkov said: "Too many deaths [of Russian exiles] have been happening".

The death of Russian national Nikolai Glushkov has been reported by his friend on Facebook; the deceased man moved to the United Kingdom in 2010 after being convicted of embezzlement and money laundering in Russia.

Mr Glushkov, a former deputy director of the Russian airline Aeroflot, had also worked for Mr Berezovsky's LogoVAZ vehicle company.

A Russian political exile who once warned that he was on the personal hitlist of Vladimir Putin has died in London.

However, UK police said there is no evidence showing his death is somehow linked to the resonant poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

The Metropolitan Police said they have assigned counter-terror officers to investigate the death "because of associations [Glushkov] is believed to have had".

Mr Berezovsky, who became Mr Putin's most strident critic from overseas, was found dead in 2013 - police concluded it was suicide but a coroner recorded an open verdict.

The man, whose cause of death is yet to be identified, was exiled from Russian Federation and had been living in the UK.

At the time of his death, he was living alone in New Malden, south-west London and was said to be a "nice man" who used to give his neighbour's children gifts at Christmas.

Local resident Tracy Broadfield said the police presence was "very large".

Mr Glushkov was arrested in 1999 and put on trial for allegedly embezzling $7m from Aeroflot, and sentenced in 2004 to three years, three months in prison.

The Russian embassy said it had sought Mr Glushkov's extradition in 2015 "for committing a number of severe financial offences on the territory of Russia", but the British government refused.
