Russian exile who was ally of Putin critic found dead in London”

A 2012 photo from files showing Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky talking to the media after losing his case against Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich as he leaves the High Court in London.

In the meantime, British police confirmed the death of a man "in his 60s" who lived in Clarence Avenue, New Malden, which was Glushkov's London residential address.

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.

The report comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May said it's "highly likely" Russia was responsible for the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the United Kingdom earlier this month.

Mr Glushkov, a former deputy director of the Russian airline Aeroflot, had also worked for Mr Berezovsky's LogoVAZ vehicle company.

Glushkov had a nasty fall-out with Putin, 65, in 1999 when he was jailed for money laundering and fraud. In 2004, he was sentenced to three years and three months in prison.

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.

During the trial he told the court he had been taken "hostage" by Putin's administration, which tried to force Berezovsky to sell his TV station ORT.

"[But] I don't believe it was suicide", Glushkov said in an interview with The Guardian newspaper.

While officers are not naming him, he is believed to be businessman Nikolai Glushkov, who was top of a list of "fugitives from justice" published by the Russian embassy which accused him of committing "severe financial offences".

Mr Glushkov's next-door neighbour, who did not want to be named, said he was a "nice man", who used to give his neighbour's children gifts at Christmas.

The reason behind Glushkov " s death is yet to be made public.

Berezovsky was found hanged at his home and an inquest failed to determine whether he had killed himself or died from foul play.

They were found in Salisbury, around two and a half hours from London.

According to Tass, he received political asylum in the United Kingdom in 2010. "Those found responsible for this use must be held accountable for their actions".
