Hey ho. Topical or what!
Western journalists have had opportunity to go into areas liberated from the head hackers to see all the Hospitals supposedly bombed in Aleppo and now East Ghouta and strangely all the Chemical weapons facilities with equipoment and supplies but the Western media just hides and stays away.

'Glushkov death not linked to Skripal poisoning’ – Met Police

It pointed out that “at this stage there is nothing to suggest any link to the attempted murders in Salisbury, nor any evidence that [Glushkov] was poisoned.” The pathologist report on Friday “gave the cause of [Glushkov’s] death as compression to the neck,” the Met Police added
."

It appears the death has been classified as "unexplained":

"Scotland Yard initially treated the death of the Russian, who was found in his London home earlier this week, as “unexplained.” Glushkov, a former business partner of deceased Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky, had been living in the British capital since being granted political asylum in 2010. Last year, he was sentenced to eight years in absentia in Russia for major theft from Russian carrier Aeroflot."

Do RT run policing in London ?

Why are you saying its RT when it was Met Police statement.

Mainly because the quote I posted was published in RT, and that was the question I responded to. Do try to keep up.

Who gets a show on RT? And why?

RT is undoubtedly a tool of the Kremlin which funds it.

Let's take a look at the Kremlin wishlist:
1) Damage the EU. (It has too much influence in the former Soviet block)
2) Breakup the UK. (Where will those Trident subs go?)

Farage has done many shows on RT. He has a shared interest with the Kremlin.
Alex Salmond is another RT star and he too shares an interest with the Kremlin.

Following Brexit, the Kremlin stands a good chance of achieving both of these goals.

1) As soon as Brexit is concluded we can expect Scottish Independence referendum 2.0.
2) In order to achieve that open border between NI and the RoI Brexit may well lead to a united Ireland.

So, 2 out of 2 for the Kremlin and the UK clock winds back to around 1700. Prior to the Act of Union.

Re Glushkov: He had an important date in his diary for this week. He was being sued in the High Court in an effort to recover an estimated £100M that was allegedly siphoned off from Aeroflot. The plaintiff was the Russian government. To believe the Russian government might be behind his murder just days before the legal action sounds a bit like a case of killing the goose that was about to lay the golden egg!

Unless there were other ways of recovering the money without relying on the outcome of a court action. The Russian government could not be certain that they would win the case, plus they may have been privy to information leading them to believe they would lose.

Where's that £100M now, for example?

It was just too tempting for Putin.
