Putin Critic on Russian Hit List is Murdered in London



Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov was found dead in his home in Southwest London on Monday at around 11 p.m. Reports from a pathologist concluded that Glushkov died by “compression to the neck.” He was best known for being close friends with Boris Berezovsky, a Russian oligarch and well-known Putin critic. Berezovsky was found dead in southeastern England in 2013.

Shortly after Berezovsky’s death, Glushkov told The Guardian that he was on the Kremlin hit list. This hit list also allegedly included Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian ex-spy who was poisoned in 2006.

Glushkov’s death comes the night before he was expected in court to defend a claim made against him by Aeroflot, a Russian airline, of stealing $100 million. One of Glushkov’s friends had spoken out, saying that Glushkov was preparing “for this for months.”

Reports have said that this doesn’t seem to be linked with the recent poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
