> I do not need a Russian bot
Yes you do. Yandex has for a while now been operating a US-based SE which occasionally sends visitors, especially those fed up with google. The bot itself is reliable and obeys robots.tx directives (including crawl speed as far as I know).
I suppose you could block the RU IP range and only enable the US range but I suspect they share data. I certainly would were it my bot/SE.
