"We have to say that London still refuses to cooperate on the investigation into the death of Nikolai Glushkov, the former deputy CEO of Aeroflot, on March 12. In order to have a thorough and open investigation, the embassy sent a note to the Foreign Office on June 5 proposing to organize a meeting or consultations between the representatives of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Prosecutor General's Office and London police. We offered to coordinate the details, time and place of such a meeting and to pick any format convenient for both sides. In addition, the embassy requested again a meeting with Scotland Yard to find out the investigation details on Nikolai Glushkov’s death," the representative said.
The embassy is dissatisfied with the fact that the details are kept secret and intends to insist on being provided access to the investigation, the representative said, adding that the embassy also urges the UK authorities to fulfill its international commitments.
The Scotland Yard told Sputnik on the matter that investigators would provide the Russian embassy in London with the information regarding the probe "when appropriate."
"Officers notified the Russian embassy at the time the murder investigation was launched. The investigation into the murder of Mr. Glushkov continues and the investigation team will provide further updates to the Russian embassy as and when appropriate," the Scotland Yard said.
