Political power attracts the corrupt, whether in democracies or autocracies, so it's not like that corruption doesn't give Russian propagandists plenty of ammunition -- so long as they assiduously ignore that it's worse in Russia.
But I suppose you'll just handwaive that away like you do everything that doesn't support your anti-American narrative.

A Moscow jury has found five men guilty of murdering the Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, following a trial denounced by his family and allies as a cover-up that failed to bring the masterminds of the assassination to justice.
Blaming Russian dirty work on its enemies is as old as the Cold War. From Ion Pacepa's book, we now know that Oswald was a Russian agent. But the left and Hollywood has blamed it on the CIA or US right wingers. All this was part of the Russian Disinformation campaign, according to Pacepa. In fact, Oswald was a commie who defected to Russia. He came back with a Russian wife Marina who was also working for the KGB.Dadayev initially admitted to shooting Nemtsov, but later said he had been tortured to give this confession.
