This page pops up every single time I boot my PC - some malware thing, I suppose. Googling doesn't help much. It's exasperating.

Is there any way to block actual websites/pages?

Download and install Malwarebytes, which should fix it.

Still there after a scan and attempts to block the site.

It's not a problem as I can delete the tab as soon as I start up Chrome, but I'm worried it's symptomatic of something harmful.

The Happy Mondays were disqualified from a special edition of the BBC’s Bargain Hunt after Bez broke the show’s rules by artificially inflating prices, handing victory to Pulp.

I'm not familiar with the spyware myself, but things that might help:

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome?

This is a bit of a punt, but you could try putting an entry in the Hosts file to block the site. Something like:
127.0.0.1 gotut.ru
