Close associate of late runaway Russian tycoon Berezovsky dies in London

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

An exiled Russian businessman has been found dead at his house in south London late on Monday night.

Mr Glushkov also had a close friendship with fellow Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky, who came to the United Kingdom in 1999 after falling out with Mr Putin. An inquest failed to establish if he had committed suicide or died from foul play.

They added there is no evidence to suggest the death is linked to the incident in Salisbury, where a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with nerve agent which the United Kingdom government believes came from Russia.

In the 1990s, Glushkov worked for the state airline Aeroflot and Berezovsky's LogoVAZ auto company. The court acquitted Glushkov on charges of embezzlement and money laundering.

Glushkov had been in exile in United Kingdom since being released from prison in Russian Federation in 2004.

Billionaire and business oligarch Berezovsky later ran afoul of the Kremlin when he publicly denounced Putin and brought a lawsuit against his ally, fellow billionaire Roman Abramovich.

Glushkov was a close associate of Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky.

In 2017, during a trial in absentia in Russia, Glushkov was sentenced to eight years in prison for stealing $123m from the company.

In 2013, he was found dead at his home.

Glushkov died at his London home aged 68, and his cause of death is yet to be confirmed.

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

May gave Russian Federation until the end of Tuesday to respond to her allegations.

Russian officials and media have responded with a variety of accusations against Britain in recent days, including suggestions that it was seeking to influence Sunday's presidential election, which Putin is expected to win easily.

Tillerson told reporters late Monday that Russia's actions would "certainly trigger a response". Those found responsible for this use must be held accountable for their actions, " he said.

The channel has repeatedly been criticized by Ofcom for breaching impartiality standards, and some British lawmakers have called for it to be shut down.

Russian Federation reportedly dismissed the British claims as a "circus show", a "provocation" and "nonsense".
