It's been there for at least a couple years, I think, and I'm not sure there's anything that can be done about it - I don't think IMSLP is a registered trademark or anything, so it's debatable whether there is any legal recourse that could be taken. In any case, aside from the Russian-language interface I'm not sure what advantage one could possibly get by visiting it, since it seems to have lost a lot of the non-score information from the real IMSLP and you can't even open PDFs in your browser window.
