Police Investigating Death Of Russian In London

Police Investigating Death Of Russian In London

British police said the unexplained death of a man in London was not linked to the attempted murder of a former Russian double agent in the southern English city of Salisbury.

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".

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

An exiled Russian who was friends with an oligarch that fell out with Vladimir Putin has been found dead in Britain.

The Met did not name Glushkov, but confirmed they were investigating the death of a man in his 60s in the Kingston borough, which was being treated as unexplained.

"Whilst we believe we know the identity of the deceased, formal identification is yet to take place", police said in a statement.

Glushkov worked in the 1990s for the state airline Aeroflot and Berezovsky's LogoVAZ vehicle company, according to media reports.

Glushkov came to the United Kingdom after being freed from prison and spoke out against Berezovsky's death claiming he never believed his friend died of natural causes.

Glushkov had said at the time that he did not believe Berezovsky died of natural causes.

The 68-year-old Russian exile admitted feeling next on the "list" after close pal Boris Berezovsky died in 2013 from an apparent suicide.

Glushkov is believed to have two grown up children, Natasha and Dima, and an ex-wife who lives in Moscow.

In March last year, he was sentenced to eight years in prison in absentia and issued a one million Russian Ruble fine for allegedly defrauding Aeroflot of $122 million during his tenure as finance director there in the late 1990s.
