Or maybe it’s the other way around.

In the first five months of 2021, crime in Chechnya went up 41.2 percent, Russian officials say.
Dimitry Oreshkin, a political analyst disagrees.
"’This is a
purely propaganda action,’ he told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. In his opinion, the election
of the head of the republic is not of great importance for correcting the
statistics. ‘(Ramzan) Kadyrov has everything under control. He will get as many
votes as he needs.’”
Oreshkin believes the true crime rate in Chechnya is almost negligible.
crime in Chechnya is low. And if not for the efforts of the authorities
themselves, and the actions of law enforcement bodies, which sometimes fabricate
cases in order to show the fruits of their work, there could have been zero
criminality in Chechnya,’ Mr Kutaev has stated.”

Russian authorities need no lessons from anyone when fabricating crime and arrest statistics. Maybe the FBI has learned lessons from Russian national law agencies, considering the number of federal agents involved in headline-grabbing arrests of alleged terrorists.
