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

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

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

The 68-year-old Glushkov was a businessman in Russian Federation after the fall of Communism and had been a close associate of oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who was forced to flee Moscow after falling out with Vladimir Putin.

Police were called at 2246 GMT (6.46 p.m. ET) on Monday to a residential address in Clarence Avenue, New Malden, where a man in his 60s was found dead.

His cause of death is now unclear.

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

When the oligarch Berezovsky clashed with Vladimir Putin in 1999, he fled to the United Kingdom and obtained political asylum.

Glushkov received political asylum in London and gave evidence in Berezovksy's court case against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in 2011.

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.

In March 2013, Berezovsky was found hanged in his ex-wife's home.

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