United Kingdom police investigate death of businessman wanted in Russian Federation

Boris Berezovsky

Mr Glushkov was an associate of Boris Berezovsky, a Russian oligarch and Kremlin critic who died in London in 2013.

Ako Mohammed, who runs a barber shop near Glushkov's home, said the Russian had last come in more than a fortnight ago.

Police were called at 2246 GMT on Monday to a residential address in Clarence Avenue, New Malden, where a man in his 60s was found dead. A police spokesman added: "There is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury".

One of Glushkov's friends, newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev, confirmed the news on Facebook, and told HuffPost UK that nothing was known about the cause of death.

A Russian political exile who once warned that he was on the personal hitlist of Vladimir Putin has died in London. In 2004, he was sentenced to three years and three months behind bars but was released in the courtroom having served the term in custody.

His family feared he might have been murdered by enemies in Russian Federation, but British police and forensic experts concluded Berezovsky had committed suicide.

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

The news of the death comes as the United Kingdom has given Moscow an ultimatum to reveal what it knows regarding the poisoning of a former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter in Salisbury last week.

The UK government has given the Kremlin until midnight on Tuesday to provide a "credible response", while Russian Federation has denied any involvement and demanded access to the nerve agent in order to assist the investigation.

An investigation published a year ago by the BuzzFeed news website identified 14 deaths, including that of Mr Young, which it said had been linked to Russian Federation by U.S. spy agencies.

"The death is now being treated as unexplained", a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Service said on Tuesday, adding that an autopsy will be taking place in the next few days. Speaking by telephone from Moscow, he said Mr. Glushkov had a long history of blood disease and his health was further undermined by the three years he spent in.

Last year, Glushkov appeared on a list published by the Russian Embassy in London of Russians wanted for serious crimes whom the United Kingdom had refused to extradite.

In recent years, Glushkov lived in the United Kingdom as he had been granted political asylum there in 2010.

"Officers attended and next of kin have been informed".

"The death is now being treated as unexplained", he said. "[But] I don't believe it was suicide", Glushkov said.
