Movie "Crimea (2017)" rating unrealistic. Probable bot attack

Hello, everyone!

So, in 2017 there was a really bad russian film "Crimea". Truth to tell, that movie was complete mess. Total disaster. And by the end of 2017, it's rating was something like 1-2. Which is, truth to tell, pretty correct.

In Russia, there is a resource like IMDB that is called "Kinopoisk". And rating of the "Crimea" movie was, well, pretty much the same.

But the film was made by order of the Russian government. And bad rating was not good for the county's reputation.

So, bots attacked "Kinopoisk" and raised the rating to something like, well, 7. Administration on that resource have found that out and fixed rating. Now, it has 1.3. Justice was restored!

It looks like new target of russian bots is IMDB.

I'm completely sure, that IMDB rating was very low in 2017. It is very easy to find a screenshot of it. There was news on that topic.
Yet, right now it is 7.3 with 3000 votes for 7, 3000 votes for 8 and 21600 votes for 9. It looks completely unrealistic.

Is it possible to check, I don't know, IP addresses of that votes? I'm sure most of them  share IP address with each other.

I "like".  Um... occasionally a line or two of comment to explain what it all is and means would be very helpful!
