Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead at his London home

Source: The Guardian

A Russian exile who was close friends with the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has been found dead in his London home, according to friends.

Nikolai Glushkov was discovered by his family and friends late on Monday night, aged 68. The cause of death is not yet clear. One of his friends, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev, posted the news on his Facebook page.

Without confirming the man’s name, the Metropolitan police said the counter-terrorism command unit was leading the investigation into the death “as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had”.

It said there was no evidence at present to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury, where Sergei and Yulia Skripal remain in a critical condition.

Fortunately it is occurring under a president who is on his side against freedom.

26. another FSB cleaning crew

possibly as a cautionary signal to manafort.

note the inclusion of the daughter... she might have been collateral or she might be a "never mind your sorry ass, if you care about your family you will not cooperate"

...and OUR president has made it clear the UK can proceed without us.

The UK is proceeding. Without us.

3. "No evidence to suggest a link"?

Russian mysteriously dead
in London

Two other Russians attacked with nerve gas
in London

But no link. Right.

6. 68 yr old people have been known to die spontaneously of natural causes.


Incautious jumping to conclusions would undermine the strong case against Putin for the poisoning of the ex-spy.

Careful you don't undermine that important case.

14. Even if that poster misued the word "you"...

... if you were the British government, you'd probably be careful not to potentially undermine an important case by jumping to conclusions before the autopsy results come back.

And if they are taking the possibility seriously, it's probably going to take awhile, as the autopsy would probably involve significant toxicology testing that isn't usually done... especially if there's no obvious cause of natural death on gross exam.

All I'm saying is the timing and circumstances are at least suspicious. Nobody is paying attention to me, so there's no undermining.

7. It is possible the two incidents aren't related.

It could be Putin had them assassinated (or tried to at least) for different reasons.

Nobody is denying Russia is behind it, just saying not to jump to conclusions the two are related.

9. That's called due diligence

You don't go in with assumptions when you work these things.

The unwashed masses can, but you're supposed to go into these things objectively if you're an investigator.

... extensive toxicology. Which I'm sure this one will.

Retweeted by RogueAltGov: https://twitter.com/RogueAltGov

NBC News @Tom_Winter confirms that Nikolai Glushkov, close associate of Putin critic Boris Berezovsky--and someone who testified against Putin ally Roman Abramovich in a court case--has been found dead in his London home.



NBC News: Nikolai Glushkov, friend of Boris Berezovsky (one of Putin's toughest critics), has been found dead in London. Metropolitan Police are investigating. Glushkov told @lukeharding1968 in 2013, "too many deaths [of Russian emigres] have been happening.”



NBC News: The Metropolitan Police say "there is no evidence to suggest a link" to the incident involving Sergei Skripal.

8. Putin is probably cheap. Why send two assassins to London when one can handle two jobs.

its possible the Skirpal attack isn't related to cleaning up Berezovsky's group. But why buy 2 plane tickets when you can buy one?

21. I'm losing track of who is poisoned, who died, but we pretty much know...

Who is responsible.

I thought a Russian spy and his daughter were piisoned and dead?? Now I read someone and a woman with the same last name are in critical condition?? Did I get my wires crossed???

23. I think you did, yeah.

Last I heard the ex-GRU guy (Skripal) and his daughter are alive but in critical condition. This guy isn't related to them, or if he is no such relation has been reported.

27. Jedi Guy is correct. There are two Russians in the hospital now, two dead. One recently.

This article is about a new dead Russian, who's associated with Boris Berezovsky, arch rival of Putin who abruptly died in 2013, in a locked room by way of strangulation. Officially that death is ruled a suicide. But things don't totally line up.

So there are two dead Russians, who have a history of being a throne in Putin's side, and now this father and his daughter in critical condition in London, that was 8 days ago from this mysterious death.

It is confusing, but then all this cloak and dagger stuff usually is.

Looks like cemetery space will soon be at a premium. Intuition tells me that things are really heating up. These deaths/murders, Tillerson being fired and on and on. It's all moving faster and faster. Let's hope we are all safe when it's over.

30. I spent at least 25 mins in research this evening

Trying to sort out all the Russians now dead or seriously ill in England, including their backgrounds and connections. Interesting but scary stuff.
No wonder PM Theresa May is livid .

Conclusion: Putin always gets even.
