Russian billionaire hit by car in UK dies amid fears he was 'knocked down' 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. The man’s dog, believed to be called Oscar, was also killed in the collision on Monday, November 25. Surrey Police said a man had died five days after the crash, and while the force has not confirmed his identity Mr Obretetsky was named as the victim in Russian media. These gangster countries should be isolated from civilised society.
