Russian businessman linked to Kremlin critic dies in London under unexplained circumstances

Berezovsky was also a close associate of Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian spy who was poisoned and killed in London in 2006.

However, local media outlets, including the Guardian, argued that the man found dead was Nikolai Glushkov, 68, based on social media posts by some of his friends.

The London home of Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov, a close friend of Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, has been sealed off by police following Mr Glushkov's death.

There is not now any evidence to link this case to the events in Salisbury where former spy Sergei Skripal and Yulia, his daughter, are still in a critical condition after being poisoned, reports Sky News.

In the 1990s, Glushkov was the deputy director of LogoVaz, a vehicle sales company founded by Boris Berezovsky, and "Aeroflot", Russia's flagship airline and largest passenger carrier. Berezovsky subsequently fell out with Yeltsin's successor, President Vladimir Putin, and Glushkov found himself caught up in a politically charged corruption case. He spent five years in jail and was freed in 2004.

Glushkov had lived in London in recent years, after being granted political asylum in Britain. Berezovsky had been an early ally of Putin - but their relationship changed drastically, culminating in the tycoon leaving Russian Federation and being locked in a multi-billion-dollar legal battle with another oligarch, Roman Abramovich, over proceeds from the Sibneft oil company. His death was not treated as suspicious, but his friends were not convinced and a coroner later recorded an open verdict. "[But] I don't believe it was suicide", Glushkov said in an interview with The Guardian newspaper. "I have quite different information from what is being published in the media", he said.
