Russian exile found dead in London amid ex-spy poisoning probe

Glushkov was a close associate of Boris Berezovsky, who fell out with Vladmir Putin and fled Russia and was himself later found dead at his home in Berkshire

"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", they added.

A lawyer says a Russian businessman who associated with a prominent critic of the Kremlin has died in London.

"There is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury", the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. Kudryavtsev declined to comment further.

Sky News' home affairs correspondent, Mark White, said Mr Glushkov's home in New Malden, southwest London, is being treated as a crime scene. It didn't release his name, saying formal identification had yet to take place.

The Metropolitan police also said that "the death is now being treated as an unexplained", while "there is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury".

Police said officers are investigating the "unexplained" death of a man found at a house in the New Malden area late Monday. "A post-mortem examination will be held in due course", the source added.

In 2000, he was arrested in connection with the embezzlement of Aeroflot's funds, and later charged with fraud and money laundering.


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

Glushkov had worked for Russian airline Aeroflot and at Berezovksy's LogoVAZ auto company.

In 2011, Glushkov gave evidence at the court case brought by Berezovsky against his fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich, who remained on good terms with the Kremlin, the Guardian reported.

The 68-year-old's body was discovered by his family and friends late on Monday night.

Glushkov had said at the time that he did not believe Berezovsky died of natural causes.

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

In March last year, he was sentenced to eight years in prison in absentia and issued a one million Russian Ruble fine for allegedly defrauding Aeroflot of $122 million during his tenure as finance director there in the late 1990s.
