Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Express.co.uk: “BREAKING: Russian ally of Putin critic FOUND DEAD - Associate of Berezovsky dies in UK”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.
