Putin critic Glushkov murdered, London police say

LONDON-British police said on Friday they had launched a murder investigation following the death this week of a Russian associate of late tycoon Boris Berezovsky.

However, the police stated, that at the current phase of Nikolai Glushkov's murder investigation there are no connections with the Salisbury case.

Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was found strangled at his home in London hours after Theresa May issued an ultimatum in the House of Commons to the Russian leader over the Salisbury poisonings.

Britain granted Berezovsky political asylum three years later on the grounds that his life would be in danger if he went back home.

The Met Police's Counter Terrorism Command, which led the investigation from the beginning, is "retaining primacy for the investigation because of the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had", a spokesperson said.

"Nobody knows who can affect and who will be next and it's very scary", said Sergei Kapchuk, a Russian businessman and former politician living in the United Kingdom.

British authorities say the substance that poisoned the Skripals is a powerful Russian-developed nerve agent known as Novichok. A coroner later recorded an open verdict in his cause of death.

In 2017, he was tried in absentia in Russian Federation for stealing $123 million from Aeroflot and sentenced to eight years in prison.

After his death in 2013, an inquest failed to determine whether Berezovsky, who was found hanged at his home near London, had killed himself or died from foul play.

His LinkedIn page listed him as a "private consultant" in financial services since 2011.

His family feared he might have been murdered by enemies in Russian Federation, but British police and forensic experts concluded that Berezovsky had committed suicide.

A Russian exile in London has told Sky News he has been spoken to by police about his own safety in the wake of Mr Glushkov's death.

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

Police said there was no evidence poison was involved and there are "no wider health concerns" in relation to the investigation.
