Russian fugitive Nikolai Glushkov's, a close friend of deceased Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, was discovered dead Monday. An inquest failed to determine whether he had killed himself or died from foul play.

According to the Russian Embassy in London, the United Kingdom refused to extradite Glushkov in February 2016 on charges of large-scale fraud and embezzlement during his time as the deputy director of the Russian national airline Aeroflot.

Glushkov had lived in London after his release from prison in 2004 after a five-year jail term due to a money laundering conviction in Russian Federation. In 2004, he was sentenced to three years and three months in prison.

Mr Glushkov gave evidence in the high profile court battle between Berezovsky and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in 2011.

Berezovsky is one of 14 Russians whom United States intelligence services believe were assassinated in the United Kingdom, according to an investigation by BuzzFeed News.
