I ran across this doing some web research:

In the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
(encompassing one-sixth of the land surface of the
planet), falsification of data of all kinds was a
way of life, especially during the Stalin,
Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras when statistics were
routinely altered to avoid problems with the planning
bureaucracy.

Thus the accuracy of Soviet historical data is dependent
on whether local officials found it necessary, for
economic reasons, to overstate or understate their
recorded temperatures. Anomalies in fuel allocations for
transport, industry and heating under the rigid Communist
5-year plans amounts to a powerful incentive for
falsifying temperature data in some Soviet communities.

Tainted data - what tainted data.

I don't know of any tainted data ...
