British counter-terrorism unit investigates death of late tycoon Berezovsky's associate

Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead in his home in London

The death of a 69-year-old Russian man in London is being investigated by counter-terrorism police, Scotland Yard has said.

Glushkov, who worked for Berezovsky's companies Aeroflot and AvtoVAZ, was discovered by his daughter Natalya at his house in New Malden in southwest London on Monday, the reports said.

"The death is now being treated as an unexplained", said London police."There is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury".

But he added that there was "no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury".

Mr Glushkov is said to have not believed his friend had taken his own life, and told the Guardian: 'Too many deaths [of Russian emigres] have been happening'.

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 did not release the man's name saying the man had not been formally identified. His family has been informed and a post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

At the time of his death, he was living alone in New Malden, south-west London and was said to be a "nice man" who used to give his neighbour's children gifts at Christmas. "If there is a change in the status of the investigation, an update will be provided", the Met said.

Glushkov worked in the 1990s for the state airline Aeroflot and Berezovsky's LogoVAZ auto company, according to media reports.

The Guardian reported that Glushkov was close friends with Boris Berezovsky who fled to the United Kingdom in 1999 after falling out with the Russian president.

Berezovsky was found dead in March 2013 at his ex-wife's home in Berkshire. In March 2017, Moscow's Savelovsky District Court handed him a second eight-year sentence in absentia for the embezzlement of Aeroflot's funds.
