There are 3 judges from former SSRs on the panel, and the Assistant Tech Spec (DURNEV) is Russian. Look at the PCS scores and you can see scores in the 9s from 3 judges for Bobrova/Soloviev. Three judges gave the Shibs PCS scores in the upper 6s and low 7s while the other judges gave the Shibs higher scores than that.

So I am not looking for "messages" from this panel of judges. What I am seeing is an effort to give Bobrova/Soloviev a good push upward. They are at this point the top Russian team and it is not the first time we have seen a Russia #1 given a huge score boost.
