Terror Police Investigate 'Unexplained' Death Of Russian Exile Nikolai Glushkov

Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead in his home in London

Nikolai Glushkov was found dead Monday night.

Nikolai Glushkov, who received political asylum in the United Kingdom, was found dead at his London home on Monday by friends and family.

He fled Russian in 2010 and was given political asylum in Britain.

Nikolai Glushkov's death comes amid heightened concern following a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England and as the government said it would investigate the deaths of a number of Russia-linked individuals which have raised suspicions.

Glushkov said: "You have the deaths of Boris and Badri over a short period of time".

Sky News' home affairs correspondent, Mark White, said Mr Glushkov's home in New Malden, southwest London, is being treated as a crime scene.

Berezovsky was found dead at home in 2013, an incident which had some hallmarks of suicide, but which Gluskhov was adamant was politically motivated.

In the 1990s, Glushkov served as deputy managing director at Russia's flag carrier Aeroflot and worked for Berezovsky's LogoVAZ auto company.

The news was confirmed Tuesday on Facebook by Moscow Times board member Damian Kudryavtsev, who was close to both Glushkov and Berezovsky.

Without confirming the man's name, London's Metropolitan police said the counterterrorism command unit was leading the investigation into the death "as a precaution because of associations that the man in believed to have had". Natasha is believed to live in the UK.

He alleged that Berezovsky and Alexander Litvinenko, a double agent who was killed with polonium poison, had both been on a Kremlin hitlist.

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.

There is no evidence to suggest a link to the March 4 poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, the statement said.
