Nikolai Glushkov a Russian exile and former associate of the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has reportedly been found dead at his home in London

An exiled Russian who was friends with an oligarch that fell out with Vladimir Putin has been found dead in Britain.

Mr Glushkov, a former deputy director of Aeroflot, died at the age of 68 at his London home, according to Russia's business FM radio station.

The death of Glushkov, who worked for Berezovsky's vehicle company as well as Russian state airline Aeroflot in the 1990s, was confirmed by his lawyer on Russia's Business FM radio.

The cause of death has not been confirmed.

A tribute to Glushkov was posted on Facebook by his friend, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev.

When the oligarch Berezovsky clashed with Vladimir Putin in 1999, he fled to the United Kingdom and obtained political asylum.

Glushkov sought political asylum in the United Kingdom after spending five years in jail on charges of money laundering and fraud, charges he claimed were unsubstantiated.

When is Ugadi 2018, what is it and how is it celebrated?

Berezovsky had accused Abramovich of cheating him out of £3.2 billion, but this was denied by Abramovich and rejected by a judge.

When he was found dead, hanging in his home in Berkshire, his death was declared a suicide.
