Enemy of Putin was murdered, police say

Police are reportedly contacting a number of Russian exiles in the United Kingdom to discuss their safety less than a day after the police opened a murder investigation into the death of exiled Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov.

Although police say there is now no link to the attempted murders of Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia, the Metropolitan Police said the force's Counter Terrorism Command would continue to lead the Glushkov's murder investigation "because to the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had".

"Putin raises the stakes", declares the Daily Mail's front page, leading with the Russian president's warning not to threaten a nuclear power, alongside an image of Nikolai Glushkov who was found dead at his London home.

The UK police consider the lives of Russian citizens living on British soil may be under threat after two recent cases: the death of businessman Nikolai Glushkov and ex-spy Sergei Skripal's poisoning. His death is now one of a number being re-examined by the British authorities.

Britain's murder probe was launched shortly after Russia's Investigative Committee, which probes major crimes, announced its own investigation into the death of Mr Glushkov.

The Met Police's Counter Terrorism Command, which led the investigation from the beginning, is "retaining primacy for the investigation because of the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had", a spokesperson said.

At the time, Mr Glushkov said he believed his friend had been murdered, telling The Guardian: "I don't believe Boris died of natural causes".

Glushkov had worked for Russian airline Aeroflot and at Berezovksy's LogoVAZ vehicle company. Police ruled his death a suicide.

Mr Glushkov received political asylum in Britain after being jailed in Russian Federation for money laundering and fraud.

An inquest into Mr Berezovsky's death recorded an open verdict.

Other friends of Mr Glushkov say that he was was at the top of a list published by the Russian embassy in London a year ago which contained the names of 22 so-called fugitives.
