Close associate of Russian business oligarch Boris Berezovsky found dead

Close associate of Russian business oligarch Boris Berezovsky found dead

Nikolai Grushkov, 69, was found dead by his family at his home in New Malden in south London on Monday evening, Daily Mail reported.

But it said there was "no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury", adding that the death was being treated as "unexplained".

A lawyer says a Russian businessman who had associated with a prominent critic of the Kremlin who died in London in 2013 also has been found dead in the British capital.

One of his friends, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev, posted the news on his Facebook page.

Berezovsky was found hanged in his Berkshire home in 2013 in an apparent suicide.

The cause for his death is not yet known but the Metropolitan Police have said that their counter-terrorism command unit is involved in the investigation "as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

Police confirmed that "a man in his 60s" was found dead but did not name Glushkov directly.

"The death is now being treated as unexplained", he said.

Mr Glushkov was the former deputy director of airline Aeroflot and a former finance manager of ActoVAZ.

"I'm definite Boris was killed", he was quoted by the Guardian as saying at the time.

The death is believed to be of Nikolai Glushkov, who was convicted of fraud and money-laundering in Russian Federation and served five years in prison before being released and fleeing to the UK.

According to the Russian Embassy in London, the United Kingdom refused to extradite Glushkov back in February 2016 on charges of large-scale fraud and embezzlement during his time as the deputy director of the Russian airline Aeroflot.

'I have quite different information from what is being published in the media'.

Billionaire and business oligarch Berezovsky later ran afoul of the Kremlin when he publicly denounced Putin and brought a lawsuit against his ally, fellow billionaire Roman Abramovich.

He noted that a large number of Russian exiles including Berezovsky, and Berezovsky's close friend Alexander Litvinenko, had died under mysterious circumstances. In 2017, a Moscow court reviewed his case and he was sentenced to eight years in prison in absentia for stealing as much as $123 million from Aeroflot in the 1990s.
