A Russian billionaire who lived in Britain has died after he was hit by a car while walking his dog. Dmitry Obretetsky, 49, was hit close to his home in Oxshott, Surrey, in an incident that involved three cars.
A Russian friend and associate of Mr Obretetsky has questioned whether he was deliberately knocked down during the fatal incident, which reportedly initially left him in a coma.
A succession of Russian immigrants to Britain have died in suspicious circumstances in recent years but it is unclear if foul play is suspected in this case.
Sources said Mr Obretetsky was a billionaire who made his fortune in Volgograd after the fall of the Soviet Union before moving to Britain with his wife and children.
