LONDON, July 23. /TASS/. The Russian Embassy in London called unacceptable the classification by the British authorities the circumstances and progress of the investigation of the death of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov. On Monday journalists said the press Secretary of a diplomatic mission.
“Once again we have to state the unacceptability of a situation when, despite the presence of existing international legal mechanisms, the British authorities trying to classify the circumstances and investigation of the death of a Russian citizen. This line is not conducive to establishing the truth and identifying the perpetrators. I would like to remind the British side that Russian law enforcement agencies are open to working together and proper contact in the case of Nikolai Glushkov,” – said the diplomat.
Former Deputy General Director of “Aeroflot” Nikolai Glushkov, was murdered in his London home on March 12. Scotland Yard has classified his death as homicide by compression of the neck, but police characterized the death as unexplained businessman. However, the media widely spread the message that the businessman was strangled with a dog leash, and also that the consequence does not exclude that the person who presumably could strangle Glushkov, wanted to create the illusion of suicide on the part of the deceased. On 16 March the Investigative Committee of Russia brought criminal case upon murder of the businessman.
