Russian businessman and friend of Putin critic Boris Berezovsky reportedly found dead

Russian businessman and friend of Putin critic Boris Berezovsky reportedly found dead

A tribute to Glushkov was posted on Facebook by his friend, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev.

PUTIN critic Nikolai Glushkov feared being on a Russian hit-list five years before he was found dead with "strangulation marks" on his neck.

The force said in a statement: "At this stage the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command is leading the investigation as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

Glushkov's death came a week and a day after fellow Russian exile Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were critically injured in a nerve agent attack in Salisbury. Too many bodies are happening. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

"The death is now being treated as an unexplained".

He told The Guardian: "I'm definite Boris was killed".

In the 1990s, Glushkov worked for the state airline, Aeroflot, along with Berezovsky's LogoVaz vehicle company.

Mr Berezovsky, a friend of murdered spy Alexander Litvinenko and thorn in the side of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was found hanged in the bathroom of his Berkshire home in 2013.

He died in 2013 in an apparent suicide, but Glushkov said he believed the death was suspicious. An inquest recorded an open verdict.

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

After another sentencing for fraud, Glushkov also fled to the U.K. Last March, he was charged with allegedly defrauding Aeroflot of $122 million and was sentenced to eight years in jail.
